Play • 42 min

Inclusion: What does it mean to you? If you’re in the same parenting corner I am, it probably means a whole lot. What would we give to create a more inclusive and loving world for our children?

There are many ways of doing that, and one of the most effective ways is in children’s literature. So many foundations for our lives were laid as little children peering at books read to us by our parents.

In this episode, authors Macy Gilson, Jessica Parham, and Megan DeJarnett share their inspiration behind their inclusive children’s books. We talk about the importance of inclusion and love, and how we can bring these conversations outside of our hidden world of disability and special needs as we gift others in our communities these books and others like them.
