Our theme for #DiverseKidLit in March is The Changing Seasons. Please consider sharing diverse books and resources that focus on the round of seasons. (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 1st April 2017 and on the first and third Saturdays of every month.
