When children see diversity in books - diversity in regard to names and ethnicities, and a breakdown of gender "norms" - the world truly begins to open to these children. And in being introduced to the world and its variety / diversity from a very young age, these children become used to knowing what is available and this thus allows them to know better what they are drawn to, and in turn achieve more. Let's make these children - all children.
Today at 11 am Calgary time, I am going to be part of an inclusive literature event where I do a live-reading of Doing What We Want - An Alphabet Book For Girls on instagram along with the Inclusive Literature Initiative and Monogram Coffee. Come and join in.
