Sylvia Rouss, Mira Reisberg, Joni Sussman and Ann Stampler spoke at the 2014 Association of Jewish Libraries conference on a panel responding to the Pew study "A Portrait of Jewish Americans" - and it all boils down to diversity.
Today, January 27, 2015, is Multicultural Children's Book Day. It seems like good timing to share some thoughts on diversity within Jewish children's literature.

BONUS ARTICLE: MIRRORS & WINDOWS:
Here is the first in a 2-part series of articles I wrote about diversity in children's literature for EBSCO's NoveList. This article focuses on race, while the second article will focus on other forms of diversity (including religion). While these articles are not specifically Jewish, I thought you might find them of interest.
