I'm over at SheKnows today, talking about why ALL kids need to read diverse books.
Diverse children's literature introduces kids to the world in which they actually live, and helps them develop empathy and moral judgment.

I think that is great news +Anne Campbell But unfortunately I self-published so it won't be in your bookstore. However the link to Amazon is below.  If you have time to read it I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts.  Thanks

Loved making this list of outstanding graphic novels and comics about heroes beyond the usual capes-and-tights crowd. Hope you find something to read here! http://planetjinxatron.com/comics-about-being-a-hero/
Saving the world is hard work. My favorite graphic novels and comics about being a hero. Even when you don't have superpowers.

Why you should read Shadowshaper, my thoughts on this amazing city-based fantasy: http://planetjinxatron.com/shadowshaper-daniel-jose-older/ #weneeddiversebooks  
Shadowshaper is a YA fantasy about an artist who finds her hidden magical heritage. "Paint a mural. Start a battle. Change the world." Recommended x 1000.

Why are all the #Minions male? #WhereAreTheWomen
Maleness: the default for characters worth telling stories about as far as Hollywood is concerned, even if they are little yellow blobs.

So important!  Throw some blankets on that kid instead of strapping them in with a bulky coat.
