As many of you know I publish a monthly round up of children’s books. This month I felt that it is important to highlight books about diversity and specifically stories featuring people of color. Racism is taught. No child is born with prejudice in their heart. Its incredibly important to not only teach equality to our children but to lead by example so they can inherent goodness and inclusivity. These stories highlight extraordinary black public figures, while others celebrate diversity and how special it is to be an ally to all walks of life. I hope we can all participate in rewriting the future for all our children to go forth with kindness and respect.

What an amazing collection of books! My daughter loves to read and she has been reading a lot during the quarantine. I think my daughter would like This Is How We Do It, One Love and All Are Welcome.
That’s a great list. I will show them to my son and check which one he would be interested. Reading is very good for kids. I always encourage my son to follow that.
Thank you very much for this post! It is really important to teach our children about diversity and how everyone is different! I was looking to get some books for my kids and thanks to you the search is over!
YAY! Happy reading!

thanks for gathering these books, I have reads reviews of most of them and they are certainly of good taste.
thanks for putting together this list. in the 90s when i was a kid, the book that spoke to me was ROLL THUNDER HEAR MY CRY.
As a black woman myself, I deeply appreciate this post and your support by making other families aware of these beautiful books. Little steps like these will one day have a huge impact.
I hope so! And I definitely plan to do my part where I can! <3
This is a great collection of books! I will be sharing this with my daughter so she can get some for her children.
Great selection of books! I want to give my niece this book: The Day You Begin. It looks so nice.
Great selection of books to introduce important lessons and support deserving authors and illustrators. I’d love to pick up a few of these for my nephew!
These look like great books for a school age kid. I will share this with my soon-to-be 4th grader!
A great list and I am going for the airport book because I am a travelista ~ While these are children’s book for my kids, I think I will enjoy reading them as well. – Knycx Journeying

Great choices of books. I am considering to get some for my kids.
How kind of you to feature books on black people. Not sure if racism is taught or innate but this could help.
I wholeheartedly believe racism is taught.
