We DO need diverse books

We need more picture books with kid characters who have disabilities but the book is about something else entirely…like maybe getting a new chinchilla or taking a trip to Jupiter or baking ant cookies…you know, a picture book?

  1. This has been on my mind a lot lately with all of the coverage that multicultural kid lit has been receiving (and we DO need more of that too) but I have not come across very many showing kids with disabilities unless they are the focus of the story. We need more!! I’d especially like to see more characters with hidden disabilities.

Let me know what you think...
