In this Ted Talk, award-winning author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie touches on the importance of diverse children’s literature. We couldn't agree more and that's why Room to Read works with local authors and illustrators from the countries we publish in, ensuring the pictures students see, the phrases they read, and the characters they meet all align with their daily experience. We believe giving a child a context they can resonate with is not a luxury, but an essential for early-learning success. Do you want to see more diverse faces and places in children's literature?
