Build a Better Bookshelf: Creating a Rich, Diverse Literary Experience for Every Child
Date & Time
Friday, July 12, 2024, 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM
Emily Keesler

This presentation will inspire a renewed love of children's literature by giving early childhood educators the tools to overhaul their libraries and create a space for all children to see their lives within the books they read. Go on a journey through the world of diverse children’s literature as we unpack statistics about characters, learn about the “windows and mirrors” our children see within books, and dive deeper into the magnitude of uses for picture books in our daily lives. Enjoy a vast collection full of examples of beautiful children’s books as we learn and grow during our time together.
