Kids Weigh in on the #WeNeedDiverseBooks Campaign

In case you need any more reason to join the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign, here are some amazing photos from the Oakland Library via their Twitter feed.

Oakland librarians, including Amy Martin, created signs and the “We need diverse books because…” template and had kids fill in their thoughts during a class visit. The results (below, in no particular order) are inspiring and, best of all, genuine. These are some smart kids, folks. We should listen to them.
