Did you know that only 22 % of children’s books contain diverse main characters? The rest are white, male characters. This limits a child’s chance to read about different life experiences and leaves many children without characters to relate to.
You can help by donating a diverse book!
What: A book drive to collect 1,000 books with diverse characters for the school and your classroom libraries.
When: April 24 – May 12
Where: Donate by putting books in the collection box in your center, in the gym for Middle School, or mail the book directly to the school Attn: Soleil
How: See www.madronsoleil.blogspot.com/
Spread the word: Feel free to share this on social media! We will accept donations from anyone! Please do not include staff email addresses in social media posts.
