Bibliographies – Books to Engage Students

The books in these annotated bibliographies have been chosen to help educators lead discussions on family diversity, gender and bullying with elementary age students.

Books provide mirrors for children to see their lives or families reflected back to them, strengthening their self-esteem and connections. At the same time, books provide a window to the world for children to see the diversity around them and the possibilities ahead.
