Inclusive excellence: Library has a variety of diverse literature for children

Posted on April 9th, 2021

Booth Library has an in-depth collection of resources focusing on cultural acceptance and inclusivity. During 2021, our librarians will feature research guides on a variety of these topics.

During July and August, we focus on materials for children on diversity and inclusive topics. Sometimes called multicultural literature, diverse children’s literature is an umbrella term for a wide variety of books.

When exploring diverse children’s literature, it is helpful to think of the specific kinds of people and/or experiences you want to introduce to your students or children. Do you want to talk to your students about a specific disability? Do you want to compassionately address the issue of homelessness or poverty?

Please see our guide with search tips to find materials on a variety of specific topics.

To get access to physical materials, please contact your research librarian or complete this online request form to have the materials pulled by members of our Circulation staff. Access to the library’s bookshelves is currently prohibited due to the pandemic.
