Frequently Asked Questions
Why does diversity in literature matter?
In 2018, research by CCBC discovered that more children's books featured animals (27%) than Black, Latinx, Native, or Asian characters. As stories affect how we live our lives, how we see other people, and how we think about ourselves, it's important to make certain there's adequate and accurate representation.
