Books are windows and mirrors! In this presentation, I’ll talk about how books have the power to expose us to new worlds and experiences.

Diversity Library Initiative

Diverse perspectives are crucial and should be reflected in the literature we share with our children. I train educators, therapists, and other professionals on the importance of building a library of inclusive books and demonstrate how to use them in their respective spaces.
