*I was provided with a set of the MVP Kids books, but the opinions expressed in this post are my own. *

Exposing our kids to the world through books with diverse characters will empower a generation of successful children in a world that is ever changing.

There are countless ways to raise culturally aware children, but my favorite way to teach my young children about others is through books with diverse characters. I purposely seek out books that show diversity in culture, race, language, gender & even disabilities.

It has become more important than ever to teach our children about diversity, and how to live with people around us.

Teaching them that we are all worthy of the same respect, regardless of our outward appearance is a lesson that we can teach through our words and actions.

Exposing our kids to the world through books with diverse characters will empower a generation of successful children in a world that is ever changing.

As an educator, this is important to me and I encourage every parent to look for the same in thier personal library.

Education

Find books like Real MVP Kids  that are dedicated to representing a wide range of ethnic and cultural diversity.

Exposing our kids to the world through books with diverse characters will empower a generation of successful children in a world that is ever changing.

Not only do your children have an opportunity to see themselves and their friends (or classmates) represented in these books, but they learn about character values, responsibility and language. Each book offers a section of helpful teaching tips for parents at the back of each book.

The tips are divided into three categories: Informing Minds helps parents guide their children into a deeper understanding of the subject matter of the book; Moving Hearts helps parents and children connect emotionally to each other and to the book’s theme; and Directing Hands gives practical actions, crafts and activities to help children gain hands-on experience.

Exposing our kids to the world through books with diverse characters will empower a generation of successful children in a world that is ever changing.

If you are in a multiracial family, finding books that represent your family can be challenging. Real MVP Kids aims to make the search easier for your multiracial child.

Empathy

Embracing others does not mean that we accept everything they say and do.  It means finding value in each other’s differences.

Reading books with diverse characters teachs your kids to have empathy for all people. People with disabilities, different economic brackets, those not raised by their biological parents, etc., is an important lesson that parents can teach early on.

Experience

Even if you reside in a small, rural town that isn’t diverse in language, culture, religion and ethnicity, it is still important to teach your kids to navigate in a world that is.

Your children will grow up and may choose to move and you want to give them the advantage of building positive relationships with people who are different than they are.

Exposing our kids to the world through books with diverse characters will empower a generation of successful children in a world that is ever changing.

Sometimes the greatest lessons can be learned through conversations that you have with your children while reading a book with diverse characters.

It's important to teach your children the ways of the real world, and the real world is diverse in race, culture, religions, and beliefs. If they do not know how to accept those who are different from themselves then it will present problems in their lives.

I purposefully engage in friendship, interaction, literature, and etc. with a multiethnic focus with my family. I appreciate all of my friends. However, I constantly encounter, and have even been compelled to leave certain events, when the 'diversity training ' evolves into bashing whites, and the intent seems to be to make my family ashamed of their heritage, culture, and ethnicity. Whites are, and have always been, the minority world wide, and have every reason to be well represented and celebrated in places where they happen to be abundantly present in literature, culture, etc. I love to include and celebrate all, but when it comes to compare/ contrast, 'privilege,' 'rights,' and other such discussions, the tide should not be turned on any ethnicity, even whites, in an effort to be diverse. Diversity then becomes whites excluded. I hope that is not what I find in these books, as I disappointingly have in many other cases.

I want my kids to read books with diverse characters because I want them to grown up to be kind, accepting, and respectful human beings.

I think the exposure to differences in books can help kids to enjoy the uniqueness of all people that they meet in their lives.
