#DiverseKidLit & The Changing Seasons

Our theme for #DiverseKidLit in March is the Changing Seasons. Please consider sharing diverse books and resources that support love and families. (As always, the theme is only a suggestion. Diverse posts on alternate topics are always welcome.)

I chose two nonfiction books today that show the biodiversity of the world we live in. I hope these books encourage kids to explore other countries and cultures.

Strange Trees and the Stories Behind Them by Bernadette Purquié and Cécile Gambini

Learn about sixteen real but unusual trees like the chocolate tree, the upside-down tree, the rain tree, the chewing gym tree, and the ghost tree. Each tree is described in an intriguing way from the tree’s point of view, inviting readers to learn more. Use the maps on the end papers to find each tree. The beautiful illustrations ignite the imagination! [nonfiction picture book, ages 6 and up]

Things That Grow by Libby Walden, illustrated by Becca Stadlander

The life cycles of plants, animals, and the universe are explored in this pocket sized book. With postcard sized pages, this book offers short tidbits of information with beautifully designed pages. [nonfiction picture book, ages 6 and up]

 

What Is #DiverseKidLit?

Diverse Children’s Books is a book-sharing meme designed to promote the reading and writing of children’s books that feature diverse characters. This community embraces all kinds of diversity including (and certainly not limited to) diverse, inclusive, multicultural, and global books for children of all backgrounds.

We encourage everyone who shares to support this blogging community by visiting and leaving comments for at least three others. Please also consider following the hosts on at least one of their social media outlets. Spread the word using #diversekidlit and/or adding our button to your site and your diverse posts.

DiverseKidLit

We hope this community will grow into a great resource for parents, teachers, librarians, publishers, and authors! Our next linkup will be Saturday, March 18th and on the first and third Saturdays of every month.

Upcoming Theme

Our theme for the current month is Changing Sesons. Themes are a suggestion only; all diverse book posts are welcome. If you’re interested, you can start planning now for our upcoming themes …

  • March 18th: Changing Seasons. As we eagerly await the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and Autumn in the Southern, let’s share favorite books and resources on the seasons.
  • April 7th and 14th is our one-year anniversary of #diversekidlit! Stay tuned for some big events to celebrate!

Most Clicked Post from Last Time

The most-clicked post from the previous #diversekidlit is Beth’s great roundup of Diverse Novels in Verse, part 2. (You can catch up on part 1 here.) Novels in verse are an incredible and accessible way for kids to get to know a character inside and out. You will find some new favorites!
