Our theme for #DiverseKidLit in May is Socio-Economic Diversity. 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 20th May 2017. Out of respect for everyone’s increased summer busyness, we will only have one hop each month for June (3rd), July (1st), and August (5th). We will return to twice-monthly hops from September, on the first and third Saturdays of every month. mwd_divider

Upcoming Theme

Our theme for the current month is Socio-Economic . Themes are a suggestion only; all diverse book posts are welcome. If you’re interested, you can start planning now for our upcoming themes …

  • Our next hop will take place on May 20th, and the optional theme will be socio-economic diversity. Consider sharing some of your favorite books that feature characters across a range of socio-economic situations.
  • Our theme for the 3rd June hop will be global books. Please share your favorite diverse books that take place in countries other than your own. Let’s travel the world this summer!
