50 MUST READ Diversity Picture Books

50 MUST READ Diversity Picture Books

I’ve chosen fifty of my favorite diversity picture books and wrote book descriptions in the style of a Haiku poem. It’s not exactly a Haiku exactly, but I’m following for form of 5-7-5.  I’ve broken the picture books into five categories:

  • 10 Diversity Picture Books Teaching Kindness
  • 10 Diversity Immigration Picture Books
  • 10 Diversity Picture Books to Encourage Empathy
  • 10 Diversity Picture Books About Unsung Heroes
  • 10 Diversity Picture Books about Amazing Artists

Let me know if you like this [weird] format because I have fifty more picture books in mind for a second version if requested. Thanks so much!
