Discover our list of diverse children books! 

15th September, 2020

Trying to find books that keep your children interested can be a hard thing to do, especially finding books that engross them into the literary world and teach them about the diverse world we live in. 

We have made things easier for you by putting together a list of books which not only will keep them entertained, they will also broaden their minds and introduce them to diversity and what it means. 

Check out our diverse reading list below: 

  • Nadia's Hands by Karen English:  Karen English's loving story of a Pakistani-American girl, who comes to an understanding of the rich culture she has inherited and why she should be proud of her roots. 



  • When's my birthday by Julie Fogliano:  This book is all things BIRTHDAY! The author captures the excitement and anticipation as she lists all the things that will make her birthday the BEST birthday.


  • What I like the most by Mary Murphy:  An intimate story about the unwavering love a child has for their mother, this loving story is brought to life by the amazing illustrations by Zhu Cheng-Liang. 


  • Daddy, Pappa, and Me by Leslea Newman:  Rhythmic text and illustrations with universal appeal show a toddler spending the day with its daddies. From hide-and-seek to dress-up, then bath time and a kiss goodnight, there's no limit to what a loving family can do together.


  • Where's Waleed Adventures (Puzzle Book):  This puzzle book is due to be released in the near future, you can check out updates on the 'Where's Waleed Adventures' Facebook page


  • My Friend Manny by Jodie Adams:  My Friend Manny encourages acceptance and understanding for children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) through a beautiful friendship.


  • Kindness makes us strong by Sophie Beer:  This bright book by the creator of Love Makes a Family celebrates acts of kindness big and small.


  • Bling Blaine: Throw glitter, not shade by Rob Sanders:  A heartwarming picture book about the power of allies to lift others up and the sparkling magic of glitter! This positive story proves that anyone can love bling, and that happiness comes when allies band together to throw glitter, not shade.


  • Robo-Babies by Laura Gallagher:  A book that celebrates all the ways babies come into families, whether that's through fostering, adoption, surrogacy, IVF, donation, fertility, premature babies, or even twins and triplets.

We hope you enjoy reading this diverse list of books! We would love to hear from you about your favourite diverse books and why you love them. Send in your suggestions to us at:, on Facebook, or by Twitter.
