“It was a joy to see our students’ eyes light up as they saw the stories of themselves and their classmates reflected in the pages of these books. Having a prominent and permanent physical display in our library sends a message of welcoming and belonging for our students and families. It inspires curiosity in adults and children alike. Our teachers are reading these books to their students and kids are bringing these home to read with their families.” —Jennifer Stanbro, Maine School Librarian of the Year, 2021
