Happy New Year and welcome to January #DiverseKidLit! Please join us in our mission to encourage taking less selfies and more shelfies in 2018. We would love to have you share your diverse children’s book links and resources, as well as visiting other links to find great suggestions and recommendations.

What 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 serves as a resource for parents, teachers, librarians, publishers, and authors! Our next linkup will be Saturday, February 3rd and the first Saturday of each month.
Most Clicked Post from Last Month
The most-clicked post from the previous #diversekidlit was Nicholette’s post at Mixed Family Life announcing the publication of her picture book debut, Ibari’s Curls. This sounds like a great addition to any book collection seeking to celebrate children’s unique qualities. Congratulations, Nicholette!
