Many Cultures, One Community


Researchers have found that children's literature reflecting diverse cultures told by authentic voices enhances empathy and validates the unique experiences of readers. First Book is partnering with the NEA Foundation to launch the Many Cultures, One Community resources to help you positively impact the social and emotional learning of the children you serve.


Each book in the Many Cultures, One Community section is paired with a tip sheet created with experts from Cook Ross, a national leader in diversity & inclusion training. These book-and-resource pairings will give you and your students the opportunity for thoughtful discussion, creative exploration, and lots of fun.


The books in this section were all written by previously unpublished authors of color and published by Lee & Low Books. With generous support from the NEA Foundation, we are proud to make these books available in exclusive paperback special editions. Discover more fantastic diverse titles in our Stories for All Project™ section.
