Inspirational Diversity Characters in Children’s Books
The Breadwinner by Deborah Ellis
Stories about war are hard to stomach; stories about innocent children caught in the cross fire, even harder. And yet, in this authentic telling of war and despair, the thread that emerges most victoriously is the story of a child’s iron courage and to make a go of life, despite unthinkable odds. [chapter book, ages 10-14]
