Windows, Mirrors & Doors: The Importance of First Nations Representation in Children’s Literature – Nov 30

Posted by ParentChild+ on November 30, 2021

In honor of Native American Heritage Month and #GivingTuesday, we invite you to ParentChild+’s virtual series on representation in children’s literature, Windows, Mirrors & Doors. Join children’s book authors, storytellers, and advocates for a compelling discussion on indigenous representation in the stories children read and hear.

The discussion will focus on First Nations people, and will shine a light on the impact representation has on the well-being and social-emotional development of indigenous children, and all children.  It will highlight the importance of all children and families learning about indigenous peoples, beliefs, and culture; the importance of indigenous children seeing themselves in the books they encounter; the ways in which we can equip parents and caregivers to access these books and share them with the children in their lives, and how we can all advocate for improvements in indigenous representation.

At ParentChild+, we believe representation and book selection can be a powerful step toward building a stronger, more equitable world.

Date and Time: Tuesday, November 30, 2021, 7:00-8:00 PM
