I’m Your Neighbor
Date posted: June 28, 2018
I’m Your Neighbor is a project promoting the use of children’s books on immigration and their potential to support a conversation about who belongs, welcoming, common experiences, and celebration of difference. As their website notes:
Studies have shown that reading builds empathy and that cross-racial scenes in picture books build acceptance.
The project website includes a booklist that you can browse by setting, theme or age, articles on children’s refugee/immigration literature, and book reviews.
