Our theme for today’s Diverse Children’s Books linkup is Favourite Diverse Author or Illustrator. What are your favorite children’s books in two or more languages?
What’s Is #diversekidlit?
Diverse Children’s Books is a book-sharing meme designed to promote the reading and writing of children’s books that feature diverse characters. This community embraces all kinds of diversity including (and certainly not limited to) diverse, inclusive, multicultural, and global books for children of all backgrounds.
We encourage everyone who shares to support this blogging community by visiting and leaving comments for at least three others. Please also consider following the hosts on at least one of their social media outlets. Spread the word using #diversekidlit and/or adding our button to your site and your diverse posts.
We hope this community will grow into a great resource for parents, teachers, librarians, publishers, and authors! Our next linkup will be Saturday 15th October and will continue on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
Our theme for the current linkup is Favourite Diverse Author or Illustrator. Themes are a suggestion only; all diverse book posts are welcome. If you’re interested, you can start planning now for our upcoming themes …
- October 15th linkup: We will continue the Favourite Diverse Author or Illustrator theme.
- November 5th and 19th linkups: Favourite Children’s Books Featuring an LGBTQ Character(s). Looking for ideas? Check out the Stonewall Book Awards for Children’s Literature.
