Check out this great graphic from Firstbook.org.  Those of us on the middle grade, realistic fiction Cybils committee definitely noticed this.

I wonder if this is improving at all?

  1. Wow! That is seriously amazing, but not really surprising if you think about it. I would love to put this graphic on a screen or poster to see what my students have to say about it. Would be a great way to introduce some multi-cultural titles or as part of a MC display. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I've seen quite a bit about this issue lately. I wonder about the numbers and what all factors into it.
