Picture Books Celebrating Diversity, by Tisha Robinson-Daly

I_Like_Myself

I’d recommend reading the PB I Like Myself by Karen Beaumont and illustrated by David Catrow.  It’s “an exuberant ode to self-esteem that celebrates the joy of liking who you are.”  With brightly colored art and rolling off-of-your-tongue rhymes, this is a book kids will want to read over and over again.

CASE-FOR-LOVING050515

I’d recommend reading the PB The Case for Loving: The Fight for Interracial Marriage by Selina Alko and illustrated by Sean Qualls.  It is a brave story about a heroic couple who fought for their right to love one another. Though the book focuses on the truth of their struggle, the tone is light and optimistic.  Hearts and flowers adorn many of the pages, adding to the beauty of the Loving’s sentimental tale.

    I’ve read the first and thought it was cute (love the art too!). I’ll put the second on my “to read” list.
