Diverse Children’s Books Link-Up – 15 April

#DiverseKidLit - Diverse Children's Books meme
Mirrors Windows Doors is one of the hosts of the Diverse Children’s Books meme. Find out all about it below – and be sure to join in, both by adding a post to the linky and by exploring the riches that those links have to offer – as well as previous link-ups

Thank you SO much to everyone who participated in Monday’s #diversekidlit Twitter chat! It was a great way to celebrate the first anniversary of the link-up. We had a wonderful conversation with a great community – and I for one came away feeling encouraged and inspired. If you weren’t able to join us – or the whirlwind of activity meant you feel you might have missed something, you can catch up on all the posts you missed.

Our theme for #DiverseKidLit in April is Favourites. Please consider sharing diverse books and resources that support love and families. (As always, the theme is only a suggestion. Diverse posts on alternate topics are always welcome.)

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 6th May 2017 and on the first and third Saturdays of every month.

Most Clicked Post from Last Time

A Walk on the Tundra, written by Rebecca Hainnu and Anna Ziegler, illustrated by Qin Leng ((Inhabit Media, Canada, 2017)

The most-clicked post from the previous #diversekidlit was Yash’s review of A Walk on the Tundra, a charming new picture book about the Inuit. The book is also a celebration of Inuit life and of the special relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter. There’s even a study guide for educators!
