Diverse Book Baskets
About the Baskets
The MAR Education Advocacy Team, comprised of Teachers, Educational-Assistants, Administrators, and parents, have curated lists of age appropriate, culturally diverse books for children from Preschool through to Grade 12.
When you purchase, request, or nominate a basket, our team sources those books with our suppliers, and orders them for you. Because we do not have the means or the space to house hundreds of books (we can dream), we place orders at least once a month. We know you are excited to receive your basket but we promise it will be well worth the wait.
For more details on the process and shipping times, please see our FAQ.
Sponsor the Diverse Book Basket Program
Educators, parents, caregivers - everyone - need diverse books for in their classrooms and homes to help teach children antiracism, cultural competency, and decolonization. Not everyone can afford to diversify their library.
Support our program by sponsoring a Book Basket ($100) or donating any amount you choose. All donations to the program will be used to get as many baskets to classrooms and families as possible.
