If you are looking for books to read aloud, read together or discuss in your family, we are here to help.

Each month, we select a Monthly Featured Book from Books Matter™, ADL’s collection of picture books, chapter books and young adult literature that address issues of identity, diversity, bias, bullying and hate. Each featured book comes with two discussion guides: one for the classroom and one for the home. Our parent/family discussion guides include conversation starters, talking points, related books and additional resources.

Big by Vashti Harrison

This Month's Featured Book


This book traces a child’s journey to self-love and shows the power of words to both hurt and heal. With spare text and exquisite illustrations, this emotional exploration of being big in a world that prizes small is a tender portrayal of how you can stand out and feel invisible at the same time.
