Diversity Resources

3 Mar

There’s a lot of talk about diversity in children’s literature, but it may be difficult to actually find information.  I’ve found a few valuable resources (I’m sure there are a bunch more!) that make finding information a whole lot easier!

1.) We Need Diverse Books

An official campaign that began on social media to begin a discussion about the importance of diverse books for children.

2.) CBC Diversity (Children’s Book Council)

The Children’s Book Council works closely with libraries and publishers and has provided a number of resources on their diversity website.

3.) Day of Diversity (ALA & ALSC)

Although this was a one-day event during ALA Midwinter, this webpage has some great resources about the importance of diversity.

4.) Cooperative Children’s Book Center (CCBC)

Looking for statistics about diversity?  Look no further than the CCBC!

5.) SLJ Diversity Resources

School Library Journal has compiled a number of resources about collection development , interviews with experts in the field, and other recommended website to visit!

Let me know if you have any great resources that must be shared!  I’m always looking for new/more information!
