CCAC Lunch and Learn: Disability in Children’s Literature

Children’s literature is a critical tool in helping children to understand the world around them. One perspective often not captured in children’s literature, or captured ineffectively, is that of the disability experience. Although diverse representation in children’s literature is an ongoing challenge to be addressed, we as consumers can take responsive action through a more mindful assessment of the books we choose to integrate into our professional work.
