How can we — parents, teachers, caregivers — cultivate tolerance and appreciation for difference in our children? And give them the tools that they need to think critically about religion, language, food, colour, thoughts, expression, all of the beautiful things in the world. For now I’m exploring beautifully illustrated children’s books that can liven up a reading culture. I want to focus on the “culture” in our reading cultures, at home, at school, in our libraries. I want to give children the opportunity to travel to new places, try different foods, and at least recognize the symbols of another language, through the pages of a book.
