Windows and Mirrors on the Bookshelf: Home


The TED Talk given by Grace Lin describes the need for children to have access to books that are  both “windows and mirrors”. By “mirrors” she means books in which they can 'see themselves', or someone to whom they can relate because they are alike in some way. By “windows" she means books that allow children to see into another person’s culture or background, or to find people who are different in some way. This guide offers some resources parents can use at home and showcases some of the books found in the Bridge library. This is a living document - changes will be made regularly.
