Our children are gorgeously diverse and they love a good read. At the heart of Real Kids/ Good Books are authors and illustrators who are building a new diverse canon, book by dazzling book.
Themes include: children of color, LGBTQ, adoption, special needs, math, science and writing. And of course there is also a mishmash of miscellany and reblogged tidbits that strike my fancy as they float by.
Books for children of color owe so much to talented artists. E.B. Lewis is one of those gifted painters who creates such beauty for young readers. Yes, they see themselves in his pages, but even more importantly, they see themselves embodying grace, strength, and truth. Here is just one of his gorgeous books.
