I use high quality children's literature with my students to model comprehension strategies and fluent reading. While the books I use help my students understand what it means to be a reader, they are not diverse in nature. My students need books that represent them. My students need books that take them to a new world, give them new experiences, and allow them a window into other cultures. Every child deserves and needs the mirror experience in literature. But that is not possible unless our libraries, schools, and homes contain diverse books, books that allow all readers to see their lived experiences, their cultural traditions, and their language worthy of being in print. "If we don’t give children books that are literary mirrors as well as windows to the whole world of possibility, if these books don’t give them the opportunity to see outside themselves, then how can we expect them to grow into adults who connect in meaningful ways to a global community, to people who might look or live differently than they. You cannot." -Kwame Alexander
