16 Children’s Books About Diversity and Discrimination

Do you want your children to see beauty in all shades of skin, to value diversity, and to know that God has created all people in His image? Do you want your home to be one where people of all cultures and skin tones are valued and honored?

READ MY BLOG POST “BEAUTY IN DIVERSITY: HOW TO TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION

I have compiled a list of children’s books about diversity, discrimination, and the history of racism in our country.

(Have I mentioned that books are one of my favorite ways to connect with my kids and teach them valuable life lessons?)
