Thanks to a generous grant from the NYCDOE Office of Library Services, we now have a collection of 30 LGBTQ+ audiobooks that are perfect for middle school readers, including the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series by Rick Riordan and George by Alex Gino! Visit our resource guide for a list of titles and the username and password to listen online.
Ms. Ahart created these book lists to encourage culturally responsive reading and teaching at MS 51 as part of the D15 Diversity Plan resource committee. Happy reading!
