I'm Your Neighbor

I'm Your Neighbor is a project which promotes the use of children’s literature featuring “new arrival” cultures and groups to engage the entire community in a discussion of commonalities and differences. 

The project features a recommended list of books and an evolving list of engagement projects for educators, librarians, and community organizations who seek to build bridges.

The goal of the project is to both support communities as their cultural makeup evolves and to create opportunities for children’s literature featuring refugees, immigrants, and “new” marginalized groups.

Recent topics covered by the I'm Your Neighbor blog include: the new Muslim children's book imprint at Simon & Schuster, the keynote address by author Maria Testa for the Citizenship Ceremony in Portland, and book reviews!
