Diversity in Literature

Reading is a wonderful thing. It can take you places you’ve never seen before. Introduce you to people you’ve never met and help you understand different
perspectives from cultures around the world. Literature. There are so many books
written by authors who are like you and who are different from you. A wide variety of people and cultures. Literature can make you think. My favorite type of book is science fiction. I like to read biography books. I like to read mystery books. Historical fiction. I like romantic comedies. African-american history. I like to read poetry. I like realistic fiction. Realistic fiction. Realistic fiction. Me gusta aprender de muchas culturas. I like to learn about different cultures. Well I definitely think reading is like
one of the biggest tools of knowledge. So I mean most things, like,
you can learn through reading. So I think it just expands our worlds and we can learn so much from different cultures from reading. No two people are the same and I think that having diversity in literature helps kids internalize that. You know you have authors
that write from privileged places. and they write from that perspective but then you get
work from an author that maybe hasn’t been so fortunate and they can write honestly from that point because they’ve experienced it and that kind of diversity throughout books you know, that’s It’s really cool to read because you kind of feel it almost like you’re in the author shoes. If you didn’t broaden your mind you wouldn’t grow and you wouldn’t have different view points and everything. With reading I can see different ways on how to face
challenges the world gives me. It opens my eyes up to the world and how things can like shift from culture to culture. By seeing a lot of
other peoples different perspectives you learn how to sympathize with other
people without having had the experience and you start to see how these play into
your real life and the world around you. “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” by Jeff Kinney. “Darnell Rock Reporting” by Walter Dean Myers. “Lost” by Wendy Orr. “The Adventures of Captain Underpants”
by Dav Pilkey. “The Final Four” Paul Volponi. “Fair Weather” by Richard Peck. “Tom Gates” by L Pichon. “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”
by J.K. Rowling. “Forged By Fire” by Sharon M. Draper. I love James Patterson because of the style he does. He makes me feel like I am actually with the character
as they go throughout the journey. This story was about an Arabic boy and it remind me exactly where I used to live. Well, I think in some books the author put so much detail in it I feel like
the characters are almost alive talking about their lives to me. To me this book really teaches you that it’s never too late to change.
No matter how old you are it’s never too late to change. In that book it has a
foster kid and my family has a foster kid and it helped me learn a little bit more about that. Well I really like enjoy reading books
like that involve emotional pain. So you learned about the struggles
and different viewpoints that come with these struggles. And you know,
anyone could craft a character or develop a plot but it takes a lot to actually make you feel happy, and sad and scared, and nervous, and stuff, and that’s really amazing. It’s a really amazing thing. What I like best about reading is that
it’s like a TV in my head and I get to imagine the things how I want to imagine
them rather than a TV telling me what to imagine. I think it makes me a better person because it gives me a variety
and a little bit of color to what I’m reading. So, you need a lot of different viewpoints
to understand people and a lot of times people who are so close-minded
don’t have different viewpoints, you know and they won’t read books. Their library isn’t diverse. Looking at the world from one angle doesn’t give you the whole picture. Diversity in literature allows you to
see the world through many different perspectives. Even when it’s time for lights out your mind has already been illuminated. Reading is a wonderful thing.
