 What do we mean by inclusive books?

Books, in which the plot, the characters, the illustrations, etc. feature a diverse socio-economic or cultural background, gender, sexual preference, or mental and physical (dis)abilities. By inclusive we mean literature that reflects and honours all readers regardless of their differences, whatever those may be.
