Inclusive Back to School Books

I know that much of the country is not in back to school mode yet, but in Southern Indiana our students started back to school last week. And as families have geared up, our back to school books have been flying off the shelves. I’ve been keeping a close eye on this display to fill it back up. And I always try to make it as inclusive as possible. Keep this in mind as you’re building yours. Consider some of the books below to make your display more inclusive!

These are just some of my favorite inclusive back to school books. I always like to have a big list of titles I can pull for displays. I try to keep my displays nice and full. What other diverse back to school books would you suggest?
