JEDAI Principles as Related to Children’s Literature

JEDI & Children's Literature Storytelling is an ancient tradition. Books are modern day storytelling and reflect our experiences and help us make sense of things. Building an authentic joy of reading starts with having access to books to which we can connect. Children need access to books that create Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to support literacy in our classrooms and our lives.
