The ULTIMATE Guide to Diverse Children’s Books with Multiracial Characters

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO DIVERSE CHILDREN’S BOOKS WITH MULTIRACIAL CHARACTERS

You’ve probably realised the importance of reading books to your children and perhaps you don’t need to be convinced of the idea that representation matters if you want to raise a positive, confident mixed race or multiracial child.

But the fact is having a shelf full of diverse children’s books is important for ALL children. It doesn’t matter  whether it’s to instil in them a view of the world that goes beyond their immediate environment or to feature inclusivity, tolerance and respect through the books that they read.

ALL of the above reasons are important. And athough diversity is still not truly representative in our art, media, tv shows that we watch and see all day,  we can make it a priority through our choice of diverse children’s books.

With the wave of technology and more and more authors choosing to self publish, we are lucky to live in an era where diverse children’s books are appearing more often in our book shops.

This guide features not only the best books but the BEST diverse children’s books LISTS broken down by theme for your child’s bookshelf. Have a look and choose a few today!

Check Out These Incredible Black Greeting Cards Featuring Mixed Race Girls!

So when I’m onto something great,  I want to share it with my mixed race community. Within a few short days of launching this blog, I met Joanne, an artist who was creating something similar to what I wanted- something that inspires our biracial girls and boys to feel good about who they are and to be represented.

These black greeting cards are so inspired and creative that you’re not going to want to stop at one.  Joanne creates cards and wonderful wall art that you can put up all over your child’s bedroom.

Joanne’s story is inspiring. With two little girls of mixed heritage herself, Joanne quit the corporate ladder to pursue her artistic talent. Her paintings as well as her line of mixed race and black greeting cards are incredible- the reason I’d like to share her website so you too can be inspired!

Visit her shop today and see for yourself what being represented can look like…
