About JLM Presents

Founded in 2017, Just Like Me Books began as a way to address the lack of diversity in children’s literature. Our work took us into dozens of schools, meeting and coaching hundreds of teachers and parents. It became clear very quickly that the lack of diversity was an issue across all content areas in elementary education.

Current research indicates that utilizing culturally relevant content and culturally responsive teaching strategies are powerful methods for increasing student achievement and reducing the achievement gap. When used consistently, they can also lead to improved relationships between students and authority figures and positive student behaviors such as cooperation and engagement.
