All children deserve the opportunity to see themselves reflected in books and learn about those who are different from them. In this session, participants will explore text sets and a vast array of recently published diverse literature focused on themes of identity affirmation, notions of family, developing and maintaining friendships, nurturing a sense of belonging, and understanding the world on a global level.
