The world is a diverse place. In order to raise kids in this world, we need to teach them about people outside of their immediate family. On the other hand, some kids grow up not seeing themselves or their family represented in any of the books they read or the TV shows and movies they watch. As I began to research this topic, I quickly realized this could get out of control, so I made the parameters pretty strict: these are all picture books and a few board books —depending on the book, the age range is 1—8. This a perfect book for classrooms, because it depicts a group of kids in a day at their school. They come from a wide range of cultures, and they share these cultures with each other through food at lunch , music, art, and their stories. Not only are different cultures and races represented, there are kids with disabilities as well as a variety of family configurations shown.
These books are subtle enough to help your child learn coping skills without them feeling like they are being forced upon them. Add to Bag. Where Do They Go? Author Julia Alvarez explores death, life, love, and grief in this lyrical picture book. Woodcut artist Sabra Field—whose prints Alvarez discovered at the library while on hunt for Goya art books—illustrated the words with stunning visceral images.

The minds of children are very impressionable, which is why it is so important to consistently provide them with books about why it's important to love one's self.

Each book was carefully chosen for its overall message, most importantly, but also its storyline, illustrations, and general popularity amongst both children and parents. This classic picture book is about a girl names Grace, whose favorite pastime is writing her own stories to act out for her family and friends. When her school holds auditions for Peter Pan, the talented Grace is heartbroken to hear that she can't be Peter because she's a girl — and black. It's Grace's grandmother who teaches her that if she has enough confidence and determination, she can be whatever her heart desires. When Nate sees a ballet, he finds himself so inspired that he signs up for dance class.
I cried through reading most of it, but my son laughed and loved it. I specifically loved that the author includes that a child is loved even when they are sad, not sleeping and more. The cover of the book has a cut out heart shape and would be a great add-on to a shape activity about hearts. I got a hardcover in perfect condition for 70 cents. My bargain hunting aside, I really enjoy this book as did my son. Otto is a dog who goes to the beach but no one wants to do the same things as he does, even the fish swim the other way!
