I am getting children's picture books about autism, Down syndrome, kids who wear glasses, and a variety of other topics that can help develop empathy for the diversity of children in our society. Included are high-quality books about children of different races, ethnicities, and families. By "high-quality," I mean books that view the children as children, not as "cultural ambassadors." Many books about diversity fall into the category of "tourist curriculum," in which the child protagonist introduces the food, clothes, and practices of a certain culture. These books serve a purpose, but our children need books with multicultural protagonists who are just being children, not being used to introduce cultures. Through this lens, students can develop empathy toward one another and toward other people in their greater community. I am looking forward to being able to share these books with my students and the lively discussions that will be sure to follow!
