Children's literature is increasingly diverse in today's publishing world and, when selecting books for the Aidan Library, we strive to reflect this important trend. There are also books which include characters that reflect various differences which were published less recently.
One series that you may not have yet discovered is Ann Cameron's Julian series: The Stories Julian Tells, More Stories Julian Tells, The Stories Huey Tells, More Stories Huey Tells, and others.
Julian and Huey's family life has easily relatable events - losing a tooth, cooking, gardening - but their family goes through them in uniquely imaginative and hilarious ways. The dad is an especially memorable character: empathetic, thoughtful, and creative. Read their stories and discover a common ground of children growing up.
