Australian National University Freilich Project for the Study of Bigotry
by Dr Helen Adam and Dr Sally Murphy
The call for the publication and use of diverse books for children is gaining momentum worldwide. Dr Helen Adam (Edith Cowan University) and Dr Sally Murphy (Curtin University) studied award-winning Australian picture books in 2019 and 2020. They argue that we have a long way to go before we realise the importance and potential of diverse books to build a more socially just future for all children.
