These books reflect many different pockets of the world. Some directly to what my students experience, fulfilling one role of stories where we can identify with characters, work through experiences, and prepare for what is to come. Other books on this list will open their eyes to worlds outside of their own, creating a sense of empathy and respect for different backgrounds, cultures, races, and experiences. The books in the list range in Lexile levels and cultures, hopefully creating a space of familiarity and curiosity for every reader in my room. If the world doesn't look like duplicates of ourselves, how can a classroom library be limited to that? If there's never a connection in a story, how do we grow connection with others?
