  1. Both these books look so cute! Thank you for the giveaweay, I think Diversity is important, especially for young readers, because their minds are more open to possibilities and ideas of acceptance 🙂

    Diversity is important in all literature, espeically childrens’ because they learn that we are all people, we all have feelings and basic needs and rights, no matter where we come from. If children learn that not everyone is the same, then maybe they won’t feel the pressure to try to be different than who they are already.

  3. John Smith

    Diversity should exist everywhere, in jobs and film and literature. Culture and jobs should reflect the population fairly.
