What are the best children's books by diverse authors?

Hey mamas! I’ve been having a hard time finding multicultural books and authors to read to our little one. Representation is really important to my husband and I so we’re looking for any suggestions!

You should check out the #OwnVoices initiative if you haven’t yet! Corinne Duyvis coined the term to "recommend kidlit about diverse characters written by authors from that same diverse group." Lots of great books fall under that category :) 0 Likes
