Why representation matters in your child's books and Toys
Kids need to see other kids reflected in their toys and in their books. Racial diversity in toys can promote empathy, kindness, and increased self esteem for ALL kids who play with them.
Look at your toy shelf, your bookshelf, your home. Do the toys your kids play with reflect the people in your community?
Children learn through play. They learn their numbers, they learn to read, they learn all about their world through play. So diversity in toys matters.
