We've compiled a reading list of children's books which promote and celebrate diversity and inclusion. Books are a great way to help build understanding, empathy and tolerance as well as being great ways to spark conversation on important issues.
We hope that this guide is useful to anyone looking for a more diverse and inclusive reading list for children and young people. Children are more likely to enjoy reading when they can see themselves in books. We want children to read the world and, more importantly, to see themselves in it.
"In diversity, there is beauty and there is strength."

Inspiring Books for Children
The books in this guide have been crowd sourced by user recommendations. The authors of this guide have not individually read every book included and rely, instead, on the sensibilities of those who have contributed to the list. Books have been categorised into suggested age categories and are intended as guidance only.
