This time I stumbled upon a list of books that were written by members of NAECTE. There was a long list of books they provided, a few of them that were published this year. We've spent a lot of time in our classes discussion diversity and it's importance. In light of that, one of the books that stood out to me was:
Derman-Sparks, L, LeeKeenan, D, & Nimmo, J. (2015). Leading anti-bias early childhood programs: A guide for change. New York, NY: Teachers College Press.
"It is never too early to prepare children to deal effectively with issues of race, class, gender, family, and ability and equity. This book is a tool box for building early childhood programs that foster sentiments of justice and fairness in leaders, teachers, and young children, and help them to act on these values.” —Herbert Kohl, educator and best-selling author.
I think this book could be a really good tool to have on hand to remember how to work with diversity in the classroom.
I really liked that they had a list of books published by their members. This gives any of us a great resource list to refer back to, especially if we're looking for books on early childhood, this would be a good place to start looking.
