Collection Categories
Diversity Collections
A truly great book collection is both a window onto the world and a mirror reflecting the reader back to oneself. The child reading across many texts, and the classroom community reading these texts together, will become deeply connected to the reading experience by journeying through the diverse perspectives and cultures. In this way, every child will feel a true part of the 21st century global world. The child must also have many diverse opportunities to see herself or himself through texts, where all genres become a mirror reflecting the stories of a child's life and understandings. It is our human obligation as teachers, parents and leaders to offer our children these diverse lenses onto the world.
