The Best Multicultural Books for Kids

This week, we are celebrating diversity in children’s literature with the best multicultural books for kids. The selections below are books we have on our shelves and have read again and again. It was difficult to narrow down the list, because there are so many wonderful choices out there nowadays. If we’ve missed your favorites, please let us know in the comments below so we can add them to our reading list.
Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2017 is just around the corner. This event promotes diversity in literature and raises awareness to get books into the hands of more children.
