Our Book Wish List

Leelanau Children's Center is reading with children with a focus on inclusion, anti-bias, and diversity. Preschool teacher Tracy Smedes-Hepler has assembled these book wish lists for LCC:

What we look for in books of inclusive children's literature:

  • children of color
  • children with non-traditional families
  • children busting gender stereotypes and taking on non-traditional gender roles
  • children with different abilities
  • themes of empowerment
  • themes of equality
  • themes of conflict resolution
  • books with two languages (especially, in our case, Spanish. Spanish is the primary language of some of our LCC families)
