**Rich's Staff Pick**
Two books for middle grade readers that deal with topics on accepting diverse groups and lifestyles. In The Wild Robot, Roz (the robot) adopts a gosling, and with various animals on the island, creates a community that works and lives together. It's a good intro to topics like "Black Lives Matter."
In the sequel The Wild Robot Escapes (spoiler alert!), Roz tries to get back to the island from which she is taken. She has to work with humans and learn about herself. What makes us a person? Does Roz's awareness of "self" make her "human"? There's a great discussion guide at the end of the book.
