Revisiting the New Year’s Resolution: Building a Diverse Home Library

My New Year’s resolution was to stock my daughter’s library with diverse books and, I’m happy to say, this is one resolution I’ve been able to keep. In particular, here are three books that we’ve added recently that my daughter really likes.

Girl of Mine by Jabari Asim

My favorite part of this book is the roly-poly little girl who sings a song with her dad before bedtime.

Please, Baby Please by Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee

This book is a good one for babies who are turning into toddlers with a little girl who makes every toddler-move in the book.

Ten Nine Eight by Molly Bang

I remember reading this book as a child and this bedtime countdown book is becoming a classic.

Our home library is filling up with well-written and delightfully illustrated diverse board books. However, I’m still on the hunt for books that feature multi-racial families.
