I read books about all sorts of things. It could be animals. It could people. It could even be a book about food that talks, like Arnie the Doughnut.
Lately, my favorites include A Wrinkle in Time, Brown Girl Dreaming, Walk Two Moons and The Velveteen Rabbit. I could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on…
I like to learn about people of all races who live anywhere in the world. I really like the feeling I get when I read books about people who look like me or share my heritage. It makes me feel important.
That’s one reason I want to review diversity books. Another reason is because we have a collection of them in our house. My parents get so excited when they see books with people who like like our family. I want to tell others about them because sometimes they are not as popular. I know this because often my friends have never heard of what I’m reading.
I will be reviewing books like Brown Girl Dreaming, about a young girl who is trying to reach her goal of becoming a writer like me. Or Cora Makes Pancit, about a girl learning to make the delicious noodle dish my Filipino grandmother used to make. I will review books like Wonder, about a boy who is bullied because he looks different and books about holidays and cultural traditions I don’t celebrate, like How I Saved Hanukkah.
Do you have a suggestion for me? I hope to hear from you!
