Posted by Readingintheborderlands

Donalyn Miller wrote an excellent post about the power of literacy and access to books:

Reversing the lack of accurate, inclusive, affirming portrayals of diversity in children’s literature is long overdue, but writing and publishing more diverse authors and stories only takes us so far if children never see these books. As a global community, we cannot continue to accept or perpetuate inequities limiting children’s open access to books.
