Top 5: My Favorite Diverse Reads

Top 5:  My Favorite Diverse Reads

I love reading these books to my kids!  I hope you'll love them too!


Just Ask! is written by the imcomparable Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.  I was lucky enough to meet her when she was on the publicity tour with the illustrator, Rafael Lopez.  This amazing book is about how we are all different.  And when you have questions or don't understand something, Just Ask!


This beautiful book The Day You Begin is by Jacqueline Woodsen, one of my favorite authors.  
It's also illustrated by Rafael Lopez.  This book is about appreciating our differences and 
seeing how we're all special.


Dreamers is about the immigration story of Yuyi Morales and her son and the beauty she found in libraries.  Yuyi is one of my favorite illustrators and authors too!


All is Welcome: This welcoming picture book is written by Alexandra Penfold and illustrated 
by Suzanne Kaufman.  It's a great read for that first day of school.  I love the diversity 
pictured 
among the students.


Finishing up my list with the Last Stop on Market Street written by Matt de la Peña 
and illustrated by Christian Robinson.  It's a book about appreciating what we have and 
the neighborhood around us.

I hope you love these books as much as I do.  If you need some help with lessons, check out the picture book units.  They're in my TpT store.  Enjoy!
