CCBC Stats Show Children's Books Shifting Toward Diversity
from Publishers Weekly
For the past 25 years, the Cooperative Children’s Book Center, housed within UW-Madison's School of Education, has tracked diversity in children's books, and for a number of those years, children’s books by and about people of color has remained flat. But the most recent figures released on Wednesday indicate that diversity is slowly coming to children's books. The number of publications with significant African or African-American content nearly doubled, from 93 titles in 2013 to 179 in 2014.
