I need to find some children’s books that portray witches/pagans in a positive light. Ideas, anybody? I didn’t realize how rare those books are until just now.

I bet you could find some comics?

A family I nannied for liked a series called Rupert’s Tales they used to introduce their children to the Pagan religion. They also suggested The Last Wild Witch.

Thank you! I’d found some books for older children, but nothing with pictures for the 3-5 set.

There’s a social media campaign going on right now to spread the word on why we need more diversity in our books. It’s really fantastic and inspiring and I am so proud to be a part of it. You can learn more about it here and here.
As a writer and a mom, this campaign is also deeply personal for me. My daughter is 1/2 Korean and 1/2 Jamaican. She loooooves books. I think she might love books more than she loves anything else (including mama!). One day she’ll be able to read them on her own and I want her to be able to find herself in them. I want her to know that girls that look like her can be anyone, can do anything. 
We need diverse books because this is my family.

What trilobites can tell us about how animals evolve
The trilobite, which became extinct millions of years ago, is commonly known as one of the first complex forms of life on earth.  Their fossils can be found in many parts of the world and are often collected for their interesting shapes and varieties. (There’s even a vacuum cleaner designed after this creature…) 
In fact there are actually 20,000 known varieties of this arthropod. They even ranged in sizes from ones that could fit inside your pocket to being as large as your sofa (!!!?!).
UC Riverside’s Dr. Nigel Hughes explains:

"They can have scoops or shovels, be fantastically spiny or beautifully streamlined and diverged to really explore their evolutionary space, but they still maintain that common body plan.”

Scientists study trilobite fossils to understand how today’s animals have evolved to the present.  This can be everything from how mating habits developed to how a species can protect itself from predators.  
Dr. Hughes not only studies the trilobite, but even sings about them.

i love this photo of these two brats taking a nap after they swore they wouldn’t, but it has a creepy Victorian post-mortem quality to it.
