Cultured Kids Lee & Low Books Collection - CULTUREDKIDS

Cultured Kids is a nonprofit organization working alongside school leaders, educators, and counselors to enhance school unity and global citizenship.

Cultured Kids fulfills its mission by creating programs that support student identity development, empathy development, and sense of belonging.

The Cultured Kids Book Collection is carefully curated for its donors, foundational members of our organization that make our work possible.

The purpose of our book collection is to educate and inspire:

  • Each child we serve has a unique, personal, and valuable story we can learn from. Our collection provides a tangible representation of these diverse stories for our donors.
  • Impacting school communities while also supporting under-represented stories and authors within the children's literary field is an inspiration to our donors.
