Author Tytianna N. M. Wells Smith said, “Books must mirror the lives of readers…many students related to the stories as they reflected on their lived experiences that connect their home and school identities.” Students deserve to read texts that speak messages of love, diversity and inclusion. As a diverse country, books that we read to our children must reflect this diversity. Students want to connect and relate with the characters in these texts. There is a longing for finding a sense of belonging in every one of us. These texts can pave the way for an understanding of one's identity.
