Multiethnic Families/Biracial Characters #DiverseKidLit

Our theme for this #DiverseKidLit is books featuring multiethnic families and/or biracial main characters. Sometimes a focus on diversity can feel like forcing people into boxes. Let’s celebrate the diversity that can be found within a single person or household! (As always, the theme is only a suggestion. Diverse posts on alternate topics are always welcome.)

I wanted to share This Is Just A Test by Madelyn Rosenberg and Wendy Wan-Long Shang

What’s like to grow up Chinese-Jewish-American during the Cold War 80’s? Nuclear war is a real possibility as is forgetting to wear pants to school.  David Da-Wei Rosenberg has a lot on his plate i this coming of age chapter book of a boy caught in the middle of cultures and friendships. Coming out June 27, 2017! [chapter book, ages 8 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 serves as a resource for parents, teachers, librarians, publishers, and authors! Our next linkup will be Saturday, July 1st. We will only be hosting one linkup per month (on the first Saturday) for June, July, and August.

Upcoming Theme

Our theme for the current month is books featuring biracial and/or multiethnic characters. Themes are a suggestion only; all diverse book posts are welcome. If you’re interested, you can start planning now …

  • Our theme for July (1st) will be series. Series books are great for hooking readers, because there’s another book after you finish the first one! Share your favorite book series featuring diverse characters?

  1. I love the ’80s setting right away! I’m also glad to see biracial characters who aren’t black/white – we have a very large Asian population in my city, and we have a lot of kids at the library who have a Chinese parent and a non-Chinese parent, so it’s great to have stories that are more reflective of their experiences (even if the 1980s seems like ancient history to them, ha!)!
