June Cummins, Children's Literature Association

Jewish children's literature offers radically diverse portrayals of Jewish cultures and experiences. From picture books depicting Spanish, Ethiopian, and Asian-Jewish histories; to young adult novels addressing Israeli-Palestinian conflicts and Arab-Jewish identities; to works exploring untapped reservoirs of Mideast-Jewish fantastic, mystical, and folklore texts, children's and young adult literature offer a diverse array of approaches to questions of Jewish identities and experiences. Such thematics subvert an often Caucasian and Ashkenzi-dominated discourse regarding Jewish literature.
