Despite all kinds of awesomeness over the last couple of days, the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign started at 1:00pm today and runs through May 3rd. Looking at the growing archive of tweets, there are around 8,000 tweets with the hashtag surfacing every hour.

4. Because Reading Builds Empathy

 5. Because Children Need to See Themselves Within Society

6. Because Kids Need to Meet People Who Are Unlike Them
