Join us as we celebrate a nation of diverse readers with these recommended books, authors, and teaching resources that represent an array of experiences and cultures.
For Black and brown students, who are often stereotyped or overlooked in popular culture, it’s personally validating and academically engaging to see themselves reflected on the pages. It’s equally important for white children that these books serve as “windows” into the experiences of children of color.
From virtual "mystery readers" to StoryWalks that exercise kids' bodies as well as their minds, we've got lots of ideas for celebrating safely.
Shake up story time with these featured videos from Read Across America partner KidLit TV, a diverse group of parents, educators, librarians, kid lit creators, and award-winning filmmakers working together to create fun new ways to reinforce children’s appreciation of reading.
