Diverse Books for Kids
Early in parenthood, I promised I would give my kids the opportunity to read books by a diverse range of authors about diverse characters. When I say “diverse,” I mean that the author and/or the characters are not just cis-gendered neurotypical white people but are all races, abilities, and sexualities. We still read books featuring kids who look like mine, but our repertoire has expanded and, with it, our love of reading.
Disclaimer: These are books I have read and loved and is by no means an exhaustive list. I’m continuing to find new and wonderful books to add to our home bookshelves and am always open to suggestions.
