As many of you know I publish a monthly round up of children’s books. This month I felt that it is important to highlight books about diversity and specifically stories featuring people of color. Racism is taught. No child is born with prejudice in their heart. Its incredibly important to not only teach equality to our children but to lead by example so they can inherent goodness and inclusivity. These stories highlight extraordinary black public figures, while others celebrate diversity and how special it is to be an ally to all walks of life. I hope we can all participate in rewriting the future for all our children to go forth with kindness and respect.
