That's my daughter sitting next to me, acting very engrossed with Pointe by Brandy Colbert. I feel certain that there will be more diverse books by the time she's reading YA, but it's not going to happen unless we take action. In the meantime, I'm seeking diverse picture books to read to her!
Another reason I personally think this campaign is important:
#WeNeedDiverseBooks because instilling a better understanding of the world in our children will lead to better leaders tomorrow.
