In celebration of Multicultural Children’s Book Day, my ebook resource to find the best diversity books written by authors who share the same marginalized identity as the characters in their books will be FREE starting January 29th through February 2nd at Amazon here.
As a mom, dedicated kidlit reader, author, and co-founder of the non-profit Multicultural Children’s Book Day, I have been on a decade-long journey to discover the best diversity books in children’s literature. With a determination to change the world, one book at a time, I created BEST #OWNVOICES CHILDREN’S BOOKS: My Favorite Diversity Books for Kids Ages 1-12 as a way to highlight books written by authors who share the same marginalized identity as the characters in their books.
Inside the pages, readers, parents, caregivers, educators, and librarians will find extensive book recommendations for Native American Heritage Month #OwnVoices, Muslim #OwnVoices, Holocaust #OwnVoices, African American #OwnVoices, Asian American #OwnVoices, Latinx #OwnVoices, LGBTQ #OwnVoices, Sensory Issues #OwnVoices and much more. While change is a long time coming, it starts with a single book.
