Wonder Crush Wednesday is a weekly post by yours truly where I choose to discuss the wonders of diversity. We all have Superman and/or Superwoman within us. The right representation is needed to make sure that everyone knows that. These posts aim to highlight diversity in both literature and other aspects of life. Feel free to adapt this on your blog too!
I walked into the book store the other day and saw an interracial couple with their child that had a children’s book open and asking her parents why they didn’t look like them. It was cute but also very alarming that some children are not represented in literature and thereby alienated from a very young age.
Below is a list of diverse children’s fictions for all the parents out there looking for diverse children’s books! There are loads more, but these are some kickass ones I’ve been told about by friends and family.
