Books are an amazing tool to help children discover the world around them. When deciding what to read to your kids, it’s important to consider books that reflect our beautifully diverse communities. Whether you’re reading books that talk about race, differing abilities or, as we’re showcasing today, LGBTQIA+ families, remember, representation matters.
All families deserve to be celebrated, and all children should have a chance to see their family (and families different than their own) represented in literature. The titles below help shine a light on different families and serve as tools to help parents, teachers, relatives and kids to accept themselves, their friends and their families.
