Students need to see themselves reflected in the books that they read (books that serve as mirrors), and get a glimpse into the lives of others (books that serve as windows). Students who spend more time reading will become better readers (books that serve as doors), opening future opportunities for them. Diverse books will help students better understand themselves and the world around them. Reading stories creates empathy for others, which we could all use more of in today's world. The goal is to also create lifelong readers by piquing students' interests with stories in which they see themselves, their families, their friends. Authors like Jason Reynolds and Angie Thomas with their works Long Way Down and The Hate U Give have not only allowed students to see themselves and their realities reflected in stories, but have also introduced students to new text types (extended novels) and genres (poetry). Students see themselves as readers because they see themselves and their peers in the books.
