Books on Diversity

These are books that seek to highlight how our similarities are expressed in varying ways. The illustrations and text may work together to demonstrate this juxtaposition.   


Diversity - diversity is about celebrating and accepting the equality of our differences; being a unique individual who is equal to all others in a large group.  Look for diversity in children's picture books primarily in the illustrations.  

Ethnic Experience - these books highlight and celebrate the history, traditions, and experiences of a cultural group.
