Diversity: Disability

The idea of finding books with differently-abled or non-neurotypical authors or characters really stumped me, so I figured some research would not go amiss.

WeNeedDiverseBooks.org starts a discussion hereDiversityInYA.com talks about diversity here, The Guardian talks with TheBookAddictedGirl about the topic here, and the American Library Association weighs in on the link between diversity and banned books here. And if you’re a visual person like me, you will love the rainbow of book covers compiled by the Children’s Book Council right here, with a teaser below. Wow! This definitely got me adding books to my to-read pile!

Best,
Jobe
