TedX Video: The Windows and Mirrors of Your Child's Bookshelf & Guiding Questions


In this TedX Talk, Grace Lin, award-winning children’s book author and illustrator, shows how the books that are not on a child’s bookshelf are just as important as those that are. 

Lin shares how books provide children with a window into the larger world, as well as a mirror for self-reflection, both of which foster our ability to build bridges of tolerance.

Use the guiding questions provided to connect the message from this webinar to your classroom.
