Collection: Educators & Community Orgs
As an educator or community organization, it's incredibly important for diverse books to be available for ALL students and members of your community. It's our responsibility to ensure that all students/communities, but especially our young people from marginalized communities, have access to authentic stories reflecting who they are. It's equally as important for them to learn about others by reading different perspectives. Young people need both mirror texts (stories that reflect who they are) and window texts (stories that provide glimpse into others' worlds) to be thoughtful readers and people.
