Something we realized when seeking out literature to create our own library was that there is no compendium of children’s literature using a social justice lens. Thus, its hard for parents and educators alike to find a place that has a variety of resources that reflect the world that we live in. Education can offer both windows and mirrors, it’s important for young children to see themselves reflected in literature, and equally important for that literature to open new pathways for learning.
We hope that by creating this website we also create a community of tiny activists that are ready to change the world!
We become ourselves through everyone else. -Lev Vygotsky
