The  Christopher Award, An American Bookseller Pick of  the Lists.

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Discussions of differences can be greatly aided by children's books and it doesn't take an older child to begin discussions. Peter Spier's nearly wordless book, People, for example, can be shared with a three-year-old and still become focus of discussion for a ten year old. The wealth of pictures discuss the uniqueness of people in terms of size, color, differing systems of taste and belief, and varying physical and mental abilities. This book can be a wonderful departure point for talking about all kinds of subjects from world peace to prejudice.
