Welcome to #DiverseKidLit ! Please join us in sharing your diverse children’s book links and resources, as well as visiting other links to find great suggestions and recommendations.
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.
We hope this community serves as a resource for parents, teachers, librarians, publishers, and authors! Our next linkup will be Saturday, January 6th and the first Saturday of each month.
Most Clicked Post from Last Time
The most-clicked post from the previous #diversekidlit was on Diverse Female Superheroes and in Children’s Books … and Why We Need Them by author Sonia Panigrahy. She shares about her own diverse female superhero as well as some important thoughts about the need to share and promote books like this for all children. Thank so much to Bethany at Biracial Bookworms for sharing this great interview!
