21 Children’s Books that Foster Diversity & Inclusion in 2021

  • Note: All the links are to books on Amazon, but I encourage you to support small, local and/or BIPOC-owned businesses when you purchase new books. You can buy many of the books online at Bookshop.org, an online bookstore with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. Also, Oprah Magazine has a search tool where you can find Black-owned bookstores by state, available here.
  • This list is by no means comprehensive. Please use it as a general guide to the books that are most appropriate for your family’s cultural and social values.
