Voices of Diversity

Voices of Diversity by Vanessa Caraveo, is a collection of poems explaining the cultural and belief constraints that face different groups of people and how they solved their dilemmas. The book mentions recognizable heroes and heroines in an attempt to highlight the importance of empowerment, unification and inclusion. The poems contain themes of gender equality, apartheid, slavery, tourism and cultural differences. The author depicts how women and girls have lower leverage in education and employment. She also shows how black and brown races achieved political and socioeconomic freedom. The ideas in this thought-provoking book chronicle heroes of multiculturalism.

The collection of poems included in this vibrant book touch upon sensitive issues that many face today. The author tells stories of both famous and anonymous heroes in her poems. Vanessa speaks of colored parents as champions to their children letting them know that their diversity makes them special and urges them to embrace the difference. Citing “I Have Dream” she narrates how Martin Luther King Jr fought for emancipation of African American’s rights. She also includes the story of Rosa Parks as part of the civil rights movement. The poems are not limited to political topics, but also humanitarian issues as well. Included is an excerpt on “Mother Teresa”, who is lauded worldwide for her work with the needy.

This insightful collection would appeal to teachers to read to kids in school, and parents wishing to introduce these topics to kids in a gentle way. This inclusivity makes this children’s book fun and captivating.
