The #WeNeedDiverseBooks Booktalking Kit is a project that was developed with the American Booksellers Association and School Library Journal. This kit helps teachers, librarians, and booksellers promote non-majority narratives in children’s literature and includes:
- PB, MG and YA diverse booklists designed to help shed light on lesser known books that are about diverse characters and/or written by diverse authors
- Shelftalkers for these books with “You’ll love this if you _____” recommendations
- Comparative title suggestions and corresponding comp title shelftalkers
- A We Need Diverse Books sign to create your own WNDB display
