More About Me On the Page

Our idea began long ago when the creator of Me On the Page was a stay at home mom with her own children. Access to books and materials that reflected them was not available locally in schools, libraries or stores. She sought out resources from across the United States such as “Black Books Galore, Guide to Great African American Children’s Books” by Donna Rand, Toni Trent Parker and Sheila Foster to fill this void.

The resource was helpful and it motivated her to pursue a Masters in Reading Language Arts with a focus on Multicultural Literature, along with a Reading Specialist Credential. Having access to great literature that reflects her own children as well as the children in her classroom, became the driving force for her work.

According to Rudine Bishops Sims, professor Emeritus Ohio State University,  We need diverse books because we need books in which children can see reflections of themselves – but also look through and see other worlds.
