Diverse and Inclusive Children's Literature

Help me give my students children's literature that accurately reflects the complexity of their lives, their cultures, and their world.

My Students

My students face every obstacle common in urban settings yet show up with smiling faces, say "good morning," and open their arms for a hug as they enter the building. When they come to the library, those smiles get even bigger!

I wish everyone could see how my students' faces light up when they come to the library!

Your help is needed to get more books in the school library that reflect these students' faces and the realities of their lives.

Thank you for supporting our little learners and their library!

My Project

These students face tremendous challenges and obstacles in their daily lives, yet come to school with open arms and huge smiles most of the time. Somedays, they need a hug and kind words to shake off their "baggage" and start the school day ready to learn.

Diverse and inclusive children's literature in the school library reflects these students' complex lives to help them understand their world and prepare them for tomorrow's problems.

Thank you in advance for your support of these young learners!

Your donation will put books in their school library that are current with the times, represent the students' diversity, and include all.
