It’s January; What do I read?
So you wanna read some diverse books this year? Don’t know where to start? I can help. Following are a few suggestions if you want to get one diverse read in this month.
COURAGE TO SOAR by Simone Biles with Michelle Burford
This Olympic gymnast soared her way into my heart. I had all the feels watching her.
THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR by Nicola Yoon
I like the idea of this book because the author and the main character is Jamaican. And we need more Jamaica in our lives. Now that we’ve got YA covered, need something for a younger kid? Have you read
Wonder by RJ Palacio
I know there are younger kids growing up so surely someone somewhere needs a copy of this book. Who doesn’t want to be a better person after reading about Augie? Already read it? How about
Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate
You’ll look at homelessness differently. And for the littles, I suggest
Marvelous Cornelius: Hurricane Katrina and the Spirit of New Orleans by my buddy Phil Binder
Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans and the wonderful garbage man who loved his city.
There. Is that enough to get you going? Let me know what book or books you chose!
