Social Justice Books

The best selection of multicultural and social justice books for children, young adults, and educators.

Teaching for Change vets and promotes social justice books for children and adults in response to the wide diversity gap in children’s books and the publishing industry.  Our lists of recommended books and critical book reviews are made available to teachers and parents at the website

We offer more than 92 booklists on a variety of themes, a database of critical reviews from See What We See, and recommended articles on multicultural children’s literature and critical literacy.

In addition to screening books, Teaching for Change has been involved in a number of efforts to have books recalled or edited, and a campaign to have Scholastic offer more books by and about people of color in their school book fairs and catalog.
