Why should you introduce Ginny to children?

Children come across several characters through videos, films, and storybooks. Children often see parts of these characters in themselves. They form views about how the world might be around them in terms of: who all belong to this world. what is acceptable? what is not acceptable? and so on. Stories and characters can form a bridge between different parts of our world. 

When you introduce Ginny to children, you nurture their understanding of the diversity that exists around us. For example, every child does not have ten fingers, children can wear spectacles and that is okay!
