I remember when I was little, my parents would read me books about diversity and inclusion. They’d point out all the different ethnic groups in our neighborhood and tell me that people are not just white or black or Hispanic. They’re also Asian, Latino, Native American and so on. And they can be friends with people who have different skin colors than they do! I thought this was amazing!
Today, as an adult, I love to read books about diversity and inclusion for children—the idea that every single person is important no matter what their background is; that we shouldn’t judge people based on their appearance or on how much money they make; that everyone should be treated equally regardless of whether or not they are rich enough to buy a house in an elite suburb like mine (which isn’t true anyway). These types of stories teach children how important it is to be kind while also instilling confidence in them when dealing with others at school or at home who may seem different from them due to skin color (#iwokeupin).
The Penderwicks is a classic book about four sisters who go on adventures together. The story follows them as they go to school and have fun with their friends, but it also focuses on diversity and inclusion. In this book, readers can learn about the importance of family, friendship, travel and more!
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a book about the letters of the alphabet and their importance in the English language. The letters are represented by a variety of animals, including chickens, bunnies and monkeys. This fun story teaches children about diversity and inclusion by having each letter represent an animal that can be found at home or school (or both). The book also encourages kids to use their imagination by asking them to come up with new words for each letter’s animal based on what they see around them every day!
Are You My Mother? by P. D. Eastman, is a lovely story about a baby bird who has lost his mother. The book tells the story of a young child who has been separated from his family and tries to find them again. He meets different animals along the way that help him on his journey and teach him valuable lessons about diversity, kindness and inclusion in society today!
When you think about it, diversity and inclusion are important to everyone.
In fact, it’s so important that it can be taught at an early age.
This is why we’ve created this list of books for children to read: they will learn about diversity and inclusion from the books themselves!
Diversity and inclusion are topics that children should be learning about from a young age. Books offer us a chance to talk about these important issues in a fun way, and hopefully inspire kids to make positive changes in their own lives.
