For me, as a mom, it’s so important that my kids read diverse books in school and at home. Diverse books allows children to see that there is not one variation of what it means to be human. We’re all different, and representing that really well in books helps children to develop an understanding, empathy, and kindness of other cultures, races, and ethnicities around them.

The other day, when we went to our public library, I couldn’t help but notice the amazing display of diverse books in the children’s section. My two girls are almost 5 and almost 3, and they loved listening and looking at the pictures of these three stories:

Anna Hibiscus’ Song by Atinuke & Lauren Tobia

One World Together by Catherine & Laurence Anholt

God’s Dream by Archbishop Desmond Tutu & Douglas Carlton Abrams

What are some of your favourite diverse books that you read with your kids?
