Welcome to #DiverseKidLit!

Please join us in sharing your diverse children’s book links and resources, as well as visiting other links to find great suggestions and recommendations.

What Is #DiverseKidLit?

Diverse Children’s Books is a book-sharing meme designed to promote the reading and writing of children’s books that feature diverse characters. This community embraces all kinds of diversity including (and certainly not limited to) diverse, inclusive, multicultural, and global books for children of all backgrounds.

We encourage everyone who shares to support this blogging community by visiting and leaving comments for at least three others. Please also consider following the hosts on at least one of their social media outlets. Spread the word using #diversekidlit and/or adding our button to your site and your diverse posts.




We hope this community serves as a resource for parents, teachers, librarians, publishers, and authors! Our next linkup will be Saturday, August 4th and the first Saturday of each month.

    I am the founder and author of self published children’s book titled Miles & Mia A to Z book and contacting you as I would love your support with the book and wanted to know if you would be interested in doing a book review, interview or feature for your site Colours of Us?

    Miles & Mia is an independent creative company that provides fun educational tools. The current book series is an introduction into the world of Miles & Mia and is inspired by my own children and their real life adventures.

    To date Miles & Mia has won Two Gold Awards for Best Children’s Book 2017 and received glowing blogger reviews, celebrity endorsements and many positive comments from schools, parents and children who love the book not just in the UK but also across the globe.

    Miles & Mia A to Z book is currently sold online at Amazon as well as milesandmia.com (ships worldwide) and the follow up book, titled Miles & Mia 1 to 10, is currently in the works with plans to publish later this year.

    I would be happy sending you a sample copy of book press release should you wish and also an electronic copy of the book to review?

    Let me know your thoughts
