This session is part of the Follett Growing Readers Series
Literature is a powerful vehicle for helping children understand their homes, communities and the world. Even before young children can read, family members, childcare providers and teachers read them stories about people in far away places, sometimes from the distant past and sometimes about people whose lives are similar to their own. The impressions and messages contained in these stories can last a lifetime. Unfortunately, the impressions imparted by some books are not always positive and free from bias. Participate in this webinar to learn what children’s first teachers can do to take full advantage of their early windows of opportunity to prevent the development of prejudice. Linda A. Santora, from the Anti-Defamation League, and Cheryl Kilodavis, Author of My Princess Boy, will offer their insights about how to ensure the books you select prepare children’ to succeed in our diverse world.
