Diversity and inclusion are shown as beautifully, happily normal here, with simple, repeated words of inclusion and colorful, engaging illustrations. All Are Welcome shows kids encouraged to be who they are, and celebrates their differences. One of the most stunning displays of inclusion is the illustration of the playground, where kids wear hijabs, yarmulkes, shorts and baseball hat, skirts, and pants. Their hair is in pigtails, a patka (a cloth head covering worn especially by Sikh boys), long and short, and the Black hair is natural. There are children running around, a child in a wheelchair, blind and sighted kids laughing together, a group playing ball, and one kid happily reads a book by himself under a tree. Through other details, like the food at the lunch tables and the different kinds of families, the message that everyone is welcome and accepted as they are is warm and powerful here.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
