As an expert in youth literature, professor Kathy Short has held a passion for books since she was a child. Worlds of Words, the country's largest collection of global children's books, has grown from that passion and Short’s desire to connect children and books.

This literature collection aims to build bridges across global cultures and acts as a training ground for preservice and classroom teachers to learn how to use more diverse literature. In addition, there is a studio space for artists and event space that regularly receives authors and illustrators.
