Books that Represent

  • This site is the result of a Student Capstone Project designed to address the representation and equity issues within the publishing industry. It contains a database of over 100 children's books with inclusive topics, representational characters, and largely #OwnVoices authors. The books are sorted alphabetically by Lexile Level and Amazon's Grade Recommendations.

  • See the creator of the website, student Sophia Wright, '21, Pacific Collegiate School, describe her inspiration and process for this project in this video introduction.
