The We Are Kid Lit Collective is dedicated to promoting high quality literature for kids that recognize and celebrate the humanity of Indigenous and People of Color (IPOC). They created a summer reading list that celebrates diversity, inclusivity, and social justice. It emphasizes IPOC, people with disabilities, and LGBTQIA+ communities. A great resource for readers' advisory, choosing book discussion books, finding books to feature in programs, and more. I've expanded my own reading list after looking at the list--maybe you will too!
Teaching Books has created a bunch of resources for working with these books, as well. Check it out!
