Exposing kids to a diverse collection of entertainment is so important in teaching them tolerance and acceptance. For black children and kids of color in general, it is vital that they see themselves reflected in books as they start to develop their identity. Below are a few children’s books Arya and I love to read together that you and your kiddos will enjoy too!
Earlier this week on Instagram I posted how seriously Arya takes story time. It's in these moments that we expose young minds to diversity, tolerance, hope, courage, love and more. In our home, we use books to help lay a solid moral and character foundation for Arya. It's also been great watching her identify different letters and start to make phonetic sounds.
