Welcome MAY! Diverse #Kidlit is Here!
Remember last month when I said April was busy? I think May is going to top it! The two celebrations that come to mind are Cinco de Mayo (5/5) and Mother’s Day, but there is a lot of really fun stuff this month!
May 18th is International Museum Day!! A perfect opportunity to explore other parts of the world and their cultural history, don’t you think?
For many, the school year is winding down this month, and our focus begins to shift to how to keep kids reading during the summer months. “Summer slide” is indeed a “thing,” and even Scholastic has acknowledged the importance of keeping kids reading during the non-school months in their report, 10 Critical Facts about Summer Reading.
With that in mind, below are some great ideas and suggestion for books that parents can add to their summer bookshelf to help keep summer slide at bay. These books are also all diverse in nature which allows readers of all ages to “see” themselves in the pages of the books they read.
If you are a book reviewer, be sure and add your diverse children’s book review links and resources to this linkup and keep these great suggestions and recommendations list growing! Enjoy!
There is something to celebrate, explore, and learn every day. Let the Diverse KidLit Roundup help you find your next great adventure.
If you are a book reviewer, please join us in sharing your diverse children’s book links and resources, as well as visiting other links to find great suggestions and recommendations.
First, 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!
