Too many of the characters that kids get exposed to are of some sort of generic white origins, which makes some kids think they just don’t belong.
I KNOW SOME will argue against that premise. Although perhaps it would do the white kids some good to be exposed to more people in their lessons.
Because the one thing I am sure of is that it is pretty sad that the one Latina that kids these days get to read about is Dora the Explorer – who began in television cartoons.
I don’t think Dora deserves a monopoly when it comes to Latinos in children’s literature.
