It is important that the voices of children from all backgrounds are represented in the literature that they read. Recent estimates show that for children’s books, only 10% represent Black children and only 5% represent Latinx children. Seeing diversity in books is critical to reinforcing positive and accurate depictions of underrepresented children.
