This is a highly recommended and thorough resource that carefully considers diversity from a intersectional perspective, taking into consideration LGBTQ content as well as gender roles, gender non-conformity, ability, race, nationality, ability, and more!

In the reviews, which include age levels and summaries, the author also includes whether each book is "highly recommended," "recommended," "additional resource," and "not recommended" with clear and concise reasoning.
