"... diversity books for kids are needed more than ever.
They are not a “nice to have”, but truly a necessity.
If we teach our kids at a young age about the world around us,
thus letting them form their own opinions
about different cultures,
we arm them against racist ignorance."
-Mia Wenjen, co-founder of MCCBD
