Happy First Month of School for so many of our Colorful Pages Community! With all of this anxiety swarming around me, the clearest thing I am clinging to in my pedagogy is: How can I create a Caring Classroom Community? Here is a list of Diverse Picture Books for a Caring Classroom Community. Use these 10 books to build connections between students, foster a love for their community, and affirm themselves.
"However, while creating my SEL lessons, I always run into the same problem/question: Where are all the SEL books with children of color??? This problem runs deeper than I can get into for a Fast Five Friday article, but, through this article, I hope that I can help temporarily alleviate the problem by showcasing you all some good and colorful books."
