Are you looking for the best diversity books for kids? Do you want these books to be written by authors of the SAME marginalized identities as the character in the book?
I’ve been reviewing children’s books for ten years and I’ve compiled book reviews of my favorite #OwnVoices books. I’m giving away my ebook FREE on behalf of Multicultural Children’s Book Day.
Today is the last day to get it free on Amazon. Get it free here.
BEST #OWNVOICES CHILDREN’S BOOKS: My Favorite Diversity Books for Kids Ages 1-12 by Mia Wenjen
As a mom, dedicated kidlit reader, author, and co-founder of the non-profit Multicultural Children’s Book Day, Mia Wenjen has 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, Wenjen 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.
