Comelibritos Corner: Board Books for Social Justice

By Li Yun Alvarado

By Li Yun Alvarado

There are so many wonderful reading lists of picture books for social justice out there, but I haven't found as many focused on board books, which are still very popular with my preschooler and are perfect for storytime with my infant. 

 

So here is my working list of Board Books (and one picture book) for Social Justice.
