#25: Creating a Diverse, Literature Rich Education with Stories of Color

Ever wondered how to infuse diversity into your homeschool curriculum effortlessly? 

Dive into this episode of The Feast Life podcast where host Julie Ross sits down with Nicole Cottrell, creator of Stories of Color. Nicole shares her journey of curating a diverse collection of living books for homeschoolers, providing invaluable resources for parents seeking to add more diversity to their children’s education. As they delve into the importance of representation in literature, Nicole offers insightful tips on navigating the homeschooling landscape with intentionality and inclusivity.

A little bit about Nicole Cottrell: 

Nicole Cottrell has accurately been described as a lover and a fighter. It is this passion she brings to her everyday life while homeschooling her three creative and kind teenagers alongside her entrepreneurial husband, Jonathan. She is the founder and curator of Stories of Color, a diverse book catalog and resource for homeschooling families and teachers pursuing a more representative education. When not watching true crime shows, Nicole enjoys teaching Shakespeare—but not necessarily geometry. She and her family call the Phoenix desert home, where the sunsets never disappoint.
