Choosing culturally diverse books for your classroom library is not as difficult as it may seem. How do we select books that reflect culturally diversity? The books you select should:
- have a central character of color;
- present the character's culture accurately and sensitively;
- empower children of color.
There are several places that you can search to familiarize yourself with the multitude of books that are available. The MCNY Library includes a resource room that contains children's books for Education majors. Visit your local public library and speak with the children’s librarian, explore the shelves of independent bookstores, view publisher’s webpages.
