Parents and other caring adults are the most important interpreters of diversity for the children we love. Through words and actions, we teach them to regard differences in racial, ethnic, economic, or religious as something to be celebrated or feared, welcomed or opposed. Cynthia Geisen helps children reflect on how we can appreciate the diversity in the world around us while also helping them to recognize those things that we all share.
