This toolkit from Teaching Books helps analyze collections, identify and bring to life diverse texts, and encourage reflection on cultural representation.

Identify exceptional diverse books for all children and teens
  • Bring culture and race to the forefront of literary conversations with culturally relevant, primary source materials
  • Facilitate conversations about children's and young adult books by learning the inspiration of these books, directly from the author or illustrator
  • Analyze and generate reports that examine the genre and cultural inclusion of books in your custom lists and collections
  • Facilitate student reflection on the cultural representation of the characters, setting, and events in the diverse books each student reads
