10 books to read to your children to teach diversity

 

With everything going on in the world right now, finding books to teach my son about diversity has been heavy on my mind and heart. He’s a baby, but just as we plan to teach him about adoption from day 1, I believe it is important to teach him about kindness, love, acceptance, and diversity from day 1 as well. Love and acceptance begins in the home and I know I need to do my part in my own home. Here are 10 books I’ve compiled (so far)
