Teaching Inclusion Through Children's Books

I am an inspiring Indigenous educator.

I am extremely passionate about anti-bias education and creating inclusion in the classroom. As a future early childhood educator, I will teach inclusion and diversity through children's books, which is something I didn't see as a Native American student.

It is my goal to have a wide range of children's books so that all of my future students can see themselves in the books I read. I want the books I buy to teach students about all religions, cultures, family structures, sexual orientations, disabilities, mental health, and experiences. The books I buy will also ideally not perpetuate gender stereotypes and gender roles. 

I need your help so that I can create an inclusive classroom and become an anti-bias educator. 

Here's a continually updated list of books I wish to have for my classroom:
