  1. 85% of books represented white families in a school that is far from 85% white?! That is crazy! Great work you guys! I know the school will greatly appreciate the room for new books that are more representative of the students who will be reading them!

  2. That is amazing! It is so sad that 85% of books were white based. The norm needs to change and by doing community work like this I feel that It will help chnage that norm. I remember one of my classes was to go to the library at CCC and go through books and describe each book and whether it was cultually diverse or not. Out of 20 books that I read, there were maybe three that had other races in them. Its so important for more diversity in schools and books is a huge game changer to have them in our classrooms.

  4. I thought your video was well articulated and cheerful, which helped balance the severity of the lack of diversity your research found. I also was working on this project and it’s great to hear how your experience differed from mine, while still instilling the same excitement of involvement! Good job guys.

  5. Hey guys!

    I loved that you chose to open up with that statistic. It was attention-grabbing and with good reason! It was smart of you to target a smaller goal of the 2nd grade library, hopefully that opens the opportunity to get all the other classroom libraries purged!

    Great job everyone!

  6. Thanks for sharing your project! This is a topic that I actually had a discussion about with Liz McCarthy during my volunteering time in her classroom. I’m glad your group addressed the lack of representation for children in their own library. I do have one question for the group. How did the children and staff react to your project?

  7. Hey guys! You guys made an awesome video. I can not believe that 85% of books in school libraries only have white representation. I really like how you guys brought up how diversity in books can teach children about racial diversity. It is also super important for children to read books about characters that represent their own cultures. Awesome job!
