Web Site: List of picturebooks relevant to all strands of the Learn Together
About this site / Ideas for this site
It’s great if class and school libraries include books reflecting the Learn Together. By doing so, many facets of identity are normalised. Some examples below:
Books with characters
- with different ethnicities
- coming from different types of families
- with LGBT identity
- who happen to have a disability
- who challenge gender stereotypes
Picturebooks can also be used at all levels to address challenging and / or controversial issues and foster critical-thinking.
Some books below which explore how picturebooks can be used.
You, Me and Diversity Author: Anne Dolan
Developing Children’s Critical Thinking through Picturebooks Author: Mary Roche
