Picture Book 10 for 10~2018

I recently engaged in a very disheartening discussion on social media about racism, privilege, and activism. As a kid lit enthusiast and parent, I believe it is vital to share books that celebrate diversity, promote acceptance, foster empathy, and applaud activism. This is my list for Picture Book 10 for 10:

1. Can I Touch Your Hair?: Poems of Race, Mistakes, and Friendship by Charles Waters and Irene Latham

2. Stolen Words by Melanie Florence

3. Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag  by Rob Sanders

4. Amelia to Zora: Twenty-Six Women Who Changed the World by Cynthia Chin-Lee

5. Separate is Never Equal: Sylvia Méndez and Her Family’s Fight for Desegregation by Duncan Tonatiuh

6. The Case for Loving: The Fight for Interracial Marriage by Selina Alko

7. Martí’s Song for Freedom by Emma Otheguy

8. Brave Girl: Clara and the Shirtwaist Makers’ Strike of 1909 by Michelle Markel

9. Malala’s Magic Pencil by Malala Yousafzai

10. Lillian’s Right to Vote: A Celebration of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by Jonah Winter
