Despite census data that shows 37% of the US population consists of people of color, only 10% of children’s books published have diversity content. We'd like to change that.

To join this board, please email pragmaticmomblog (at) gmail (dot) com. Lovingly edited by PragmaticMom.com and JumpIntoaBook.com.

Ancestor Approved: Intertribal Stories for Kids by Cynthia Leitich Smith, editor

First, I was attracted to the cover illustration, which I think is great.
