Mirror Making: A Conversation with Daria Peoples-Riley

When I finally got my hands on Daria Peoples-Riley's book, I was instantly captivated by her illustrations: Wow, just wow. I felt like I was right next to the main character, walking through a well-loved community. I just had to feature this book and author-illustrator on Colorful Pages! Luckily, when I reached out, Daria agreed to do an interview to discuss her own story and latest picture book.

Books to Build Your Ethnic Studies Library

Colorful Pages got to be apart of the 2019 Seattle Ethnic Studies Institute this week. I wanted to create a post about some of the books we have on display at the 2019 Seattle Ethnic Institute for our virtual followers. The following titles are books that educators, librarians, and families can use to build their ethnic studies lessons and libraries! We will cover three books for elementary and three books for secondary.
