Modern First Library: Reclaiming Our Children’s Heritage by David Bowles

What if the books you read were not like you at all?  You are a girl and the books are all about boys.  You are a person of color and the books are all about whites.  You are a Catholic and the books are all about Protestants.  Now imagine how much more the books would mean to you if at least some of the characters looked like you or your family.  Read about a poor Mexican kid living in Texas who did not discover books for kids like him until he was grown.
