It’s time for weekend links!

This week I decided to showcase all my wonderful co-Pinners over at our brand new (and very special) Pinterest Board Multicultural Books for Kids. I co-created this board with Mia from PragmaticMom because, despite census data that shows 37% of the US population consists of people of color, only 10% of children’s books published have diversity content. We’d like to change that. The focus of the Multicultural Books for Kids board is to highlight children’s authors and illustrators of color and high quality children’s books with diversity themes and/or characters.

The following links are all from our stellar Pinners from this Board.

All Done Monkey is doing a great series called Around The Word in 12 Dishes. Check out her latest Egypt-inspired Raspberry Lemon Cooler recipe HERE.

  1. This is a great resource, thank you. We need to promote as many diverse stories as possible because it is so wrong for young children to feel alienated because they don’t see themselves represented in the stories they read.

    1. Thank YOU, Frances! I truly appreciate you taking the time to create such a gorgeous guest post for JIAB. I appreciate all that you do to spread the word about multicultural books and encouraging our young ones to read 🙂
