Have you ever wondered what the diversity gap looks like in the children’s book arena? It looks like this:
We Need Diverse Books has raised more than their goal of $100,000 through their Indiegogo campaign. However, that doesn’t mean we should stop giving.
Though more than half of schoolchildren are minorities–people of color, LGBTQIA, and/or people with disabilities–the fact remains that too few of these children see reflections of themselves in the books they read. Books are more than mirrors– they’re windows as well. The more kids read, the more they understand not just themselves, but the Story of Us All.
