Books are such an incredible way to open up the world to children, yet still today in 2017 the characters in children’s books remain overwhelmingly white. Studies show the importance of representation in literature, yet there is still an incredible diversity gap. The good news is that there is a groundswell of support for more multicultural children’s literature, and our sister website Multicultural Kid Blogs has just launched a campaign to encourage people to donate books – especially diverse books – so that more of these incredible stories find their way into the hands of the children that long to read them.

Donate books to help make diverse literature more widely available

Today you can find me over at Multicultural Kid Blogs sharing a list of where you can donate books to make diverse literature more widely available. Be sure to share your photos on social media using the hashtag #donateMKB!
