About this Catalog

There’s nothing more powerful than a story to connect us, to help us understand each other, and to build empathy. With this catalog, we aim to share books for all ages that tell the stories of historically underrepresented groups specifically related to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical and mental abilities, religion, and culture. In sharing these books with young people, you will be giving them the opportunity to see that everyone’s story deserves to be told, to read widely, and to understand and expand their world.


Included inside:

•   Information about multiple editions, including en Español, audiobook, and ebook

•   Listing of titles by grade range

•   List of Educator Resources

•   An index with topic and theme markers

•   So many books to love from classics to new favorites!

Power of Story Presents Speaker Series

Join us for the Power of Story Presents Speaker Series with our premiere event Beyond Borders: Immigrant Experiences in Kidlit. Award-Winning authors give a voice to the often invisible modern immigrant story, shining a light on what it means to be an immigrant and exploring why a person would decide to leave their home and the peril that exists on either side of the border once they do.

Featuring Aida Salazar (Author, Land of the Cranes), Francisco X. Stork (Author, Illegal), and Kelly Yang (Author, Three Keys)

What Does the Power of Story Mean to You?


Tami Charles, award-winning author of All Because You Matter

For the first 11 years of my life, I was an only child, so stories were all I had to keep me company. Stories gave me the power to envision myself far beyond where I was at the moment. Now I’m in an incredible position to show the power of story to readers. I get to share the power of story with my son, Christopher. I want him, and all children, to grow up knowing that they have a purpose in this universe. The stories I write and the stories that we read together take us to places both near and far, and teach us about people who are like us and those who are beautifully different.


Kelly Yang, award-winning author of Three Keys

Stories are powerful because they transcend the boundaries of race, gender, and your current socioeconomic station. They don’t care that you add water to your shampoo to make it last longer or that you practice the piano on your desk because you can’t afford a real one. They put all those differences aside and appeal to what we all have in common. My parents and I were first-generation, struggling immigrants from China, working in motels all over California. But I always had stories, borrowed from my school library. It didn’t matter that my parents and I worked seven days a week or that the last vacation my family took was coming to this country – through those stories, I could travel the world, be anyone, do anything! That is the power of story.


Francisco X. Stork, award-winning author of Illegal

The power of story happens when there is a character in a novel who is like me, although I’ve never seen myself that way, and there are words for what I’ve felt before but could not name until then, and something suddenly opens in me and around me and I see new worth and value to who I am, such as I am, and to my life, such as it is, and I am rung like a bell, certain that I am being asked to give to life what only I can give.
