Sharing the wonders of the world: Representations of diversity in books for young children
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Our youngest learners are eager to explore the many wonders of our world: the interesting things, cool places, and dynamic people they might one day encounter. It’s long been said that literature should serve as both a mirror, allowing readers to see reflections of their own identities, and also a window, enabling readers to meet others with alternate perspectives, experiences, personalities, character traits, and characteristics. Through the curation and sharing of literature and information resources, school librarians can prepare our youngest learners to participate as global citizens in this vast and glorious universe. In this session librarians will interactively probe and scrutinize literature selections for young children and consider the multiple ways we might diversify collections.
