Whether they're themed for a coming holiday, meant to introduce the children in the class, or are simply reflective of the character of the classroom, bulletin boards can be a way to connect with kids on a smart, entertaining level.
If you’ve been paying any attention to the publishing business for the past several years, you’ll know that publishers, writers, illustrators, teachers, librarians, and parents are calling (and answering the call) for more diversity in the books we give to our children. The grassroots organization We Need Diverse Books has been instrumental in getting #WeNeedDiverseBooks into the spotlight and into editorial meetings around the country.
