Good day! Here’s my newest book recommendations based on my best interpretation of Kristin Wiens (@kwiens62)’s visual “My Inclusion ABC’s” poster. I’ve listed one book per alphabet letter, themed by Kristin Wiens’ inclusion wording recommendation (i.e. F = Fair means everyone getting their needs met). Some books are geared towards child learning and some are for teachers or parents. This is noted beside the author’s name! ENJOY!!
