Books and stories are a fantastic way to help children understand anti-racism and diversity and a way to encourage and ease difficult conversations. Edmonton Public Library has created this useful literature guide for parents and educators of K-12 students featuring themes of representation, diversity and the Black Canadian cultural experience.
This blog is run by a Nambé Pueblo Indigenous person with the express intent to help educators choose texts which authentically represent BIPOC people. Note: this website is hosted in the States so the naming conventions are not correct for Canada.
This site (part of School Library Journal) reviews recent works of children’s and young adult literature and provides a variety of ideas and resources to help incorporate these texts into K-12 classroom teaching.
This is an electronic quarterly review of contemporary English-language materials of interest to children and young adults. Of particular use to librarians, parents, teachers and anyone working with young people, we also publish news and opinions relevant to children’s literacy.
25 of the best Indigenous picture books published in Canada between 2018–2023 were selected for this collection. Care was taken to ensure that the collection reflects the diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit voices from sea to sea to sea, and that the titles are available and in print for anyone who wishes to access them.
