As a mom, it is so important to teach my son all about diversity. A simple way to teach our kids about diversity is through reading. Luckily my son loves to read and this was a fun way to have a learning moment with my little one.
There are a few books that I came across from Candlewick Books. Candlewick Press is a children’s book publisher based out of Somerville, MA. For many years Candlewick Books has published children’s books for all ages.
I came across a few books thought would be useful to teach your kids about different cultures, languages how these things make us different and diverse.

In today’s society, teaching our littles ones about diversity is important. Whether we introduce them to diversity by traveling, experiences, or reading, it’s always great to talk to our children about how people can be different in their unique way. The great thing about these books is that all of these stories talk about cultures, which I find to be amazing.
