Books are most effective when they are relevant to children’s lives, but our current inventory of culturally diverse books is not nearly sufficient to meet the need of the wide diversity of children and families we serve. To bridge the gap between the need for culturally diverse books and the lack of availability, we are launching “A Story Like Mine.” Your support of this project helps us make more culturally diverse books available for all of the children we serve.
