Kids’ Corner: Diverse Children’s Picture Books (January 2019)

being continents away is exciting, but come with me next time! (10)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a diverse children’s picture books feature.  I’ve missed it!  My daughter is participating in a program through our local library called 1000 Books Before Kindergarten.  Since we have a bit of reading to do before August 2019, I figured this would be the perfect time to get back into this feature.

*Diverse Children’s Picture Books is a feature where I spotlight a few diverse children’s picture book that I feel deserve some attention.  What do I mean by diverse children’s picture books?  I mean children’s picture books that are written by or about people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+, and any other minorities.  Diversity in books is just as (if not more) important in children’s literature.
Books included in this post: The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson, Dreamers by Yuyi Morales, I Am Enough by Grace Byers, and A Big Mooncake for Little Star by Grace Lin
