Join us in celebrating diversity at bedtime by donating storybooks that authentically represent minorities.

We at Pajama Program firmly believe that #RepresentationMatters.

Representation is crucial to making a child feel included in society and expanding all children’s concept of what is possible. When children see people who look, act, and experience life like them reflected in the books they read, they are able to feel a sense of inclusion in society and can see potential for what their lives could be.

Representation benefits everyone. Reading multicultural books promotes unity, empathy, and the interaction of children across differing ethnic backgrounds, among many other benefits.

Donate a storybook from our curated lists and help us create a world where all children can see themselves in stories at bedtime.

“The look on a child’s face when the character on the cover looks like her or him is priceless. The smile is a little wider and the pages turn a little faster.”
