Disability in Kid Lit

Lately I've been reading some fascinating blogs and threads about diversity, and how to embrace and respect diverse voices as librarians (here's one, which has an incredible bunch of comments).  In the midst of this, I came across a reference to a relatively new, beautiful, and important blog called Disability in Kidlit.  It features discussions, reviews, and interviews about middle grade and young adult literature, all from a disability perspective.  I have read several of the reviews, and find the perspective of a person with a disability in evaluating a book that includes elements of the disability experience is really interesting.

So much to think about and learn!
