When I was a kid, I never saw characters in stories or books that looked like me. I never saw books with families that looked like my family. Now, as a mother with a new generation of kids, we've come such a long way. It's not perfect, but children's toys, tv shows, and books show so much more diversity then in years past. Today, I wanted to share a few of my favorite books that teach (and show) diversity to kids. Here are nine of my favorites... 

(left to right, top to bottom): The Skin You Live In, Goodnight Stories for Rebel GirlsI Like Myself, This is How We Do ItMommy, Mama, and MeThe Last Stop on Market StreetLove Family (a customizable book for multiracial families), Pepper Zhang, and Zero.

If there are any others you love, please share in the comments!
