OwnVoices

#OwnVoices authors are an essential part of the publishing fabric for diverse children's books.  It is important for children to identify with book characters through windows and mirrors. However, when a reader can also feel a connection to the author because he/she is writing based on an authentic experience... the impact can be incredibly powerful.  We are proud to offer #ownvoices book collections for grades K-5 to not only enhance classroom libraries, but hopefully reach children who are searching for characters, written by authors, who are similar to themselves.
