Story reading and picture books have always served as a means for adults to educate children about sociocultural norms and expectations. In an increasingly diverse society with growing economic and social disparities, it is important to use high quality children’s literature to support children’s learning of empathy, compassion, cultural competence and social justice. This institute webinar will focus on how children benefit from opportunities to learn about real societal challenges via literature that considers and respects their developmental capacities and understandings.
