33 Books That Promote Tolerance and Diversity
To ensure that your kids are reading books that reflect real people in our world, our friends at Common Sense Media have rounded up some great reads.
Books have a way of sparking empathy, drawing readers into the lives of characters who may be different from themselves — or different from other characters in the story. Kids and teens walk in others' shoes as these characters navigate the school bus, deal with bullies, fall in love, face physical or mental challenges, or have fantastical adventures in another time or galaxy. It's a diverse world, and these books reflect the view that we're all in it together.
