A Great Share from the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art:

     I found this thoughtful essay from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art page this morning. It is an important and thoughtful reflection on the importance of diversity — a more complex idea of diversity than we usually use — in children’s book. Thank you to one of my very favorite museums in the world for an important share!

Read…Reflect…Share!

“Contributed by Christine Bronstein, Founder, Nothing But The Truth Publishing Many topics are being explored around diversity in children’s books, which I think is critical to our world… As an author and a publisher—and a very white one—I wonder if we don’t need a new framework to understand the importance of this topic for our culture as a whole. Maybe we should view the lack of diverse voices as a cultural problem that extends beyond the color of our skin; one that may form our views of the world as literally more black and white than they are…”
