Watch out February 1st! HERE WE COME!

Get excited folks! On Friday, we are launching our very first
action of the year. February 1st marks the beginning of Dive Into
Diversity Days: National Diversity Book Month for Children. We are
dedicating the whole month of February to children’s books with
diverse family themes because we believe it’s incredibly
important that our kids are read stories that reflect their family
constellations. The more books children read about different family
make-ups (LGBTQ-headed, single parent, grandparent-led, etc), the
more open and accepting they will learn to be. There are 5 ways
that you can celebrate this glorious month. There will be a video
posted of me reading Molly’s Family by Nancy Garden—we invite
you to read along as we watch Molly tell her kindergarten class
about her two moms. There will be a master list of LGBTQ-family
friendly books which we encourage you to: donate a few of the
listed books to a local library or school, bring the list into your
schools and challenge your library to match it, or volunteer to
read one of the books at a local story hour in your library or
child’s school. We will also have a yummy hot chocolate recipe on
this “National Diversity Book Month” page so you can cozy up
and enjoy your books in a cuddly setting!
