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.
Thanks for stopping by.
Lola Loves Stories by Anna McQuinn, illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw (Charlesbridge, 2010).
Lola is cute. Her Daddy takes her to the library and the books she checks out get her started on many an adventure.
There’s even a sweet shout out to Maurice Sendak’s Where The Wild Things Are woven right into Lola’s reading adventures. Overall a lovely little nibble of a book.
