Kids Books on Diversity, Identity, Self-Esteem, and Understanding Difference

June 16, 2020|Child & Adolescent

Our Child & Adolescent team created a list books on diversity, cultural identity, self-esteem, self-reliance and celebrating and understanding difference. Children are aware of what is going on in the world and often times we struggle with how to explain it. These are some fantastic books, and are great for adults to read as well!
