Celebrate Women’s History Month with Great Diverse Youth Lit!
I love youth lit! My girls and I are on a MAJOR reading kick of late and I’m having a hard time keeping up. We’ve been loving our girl heroines, Anne of Green Gables, and a Wrinkle in Time. But in looking through our list of late, I realized it was a little too vanilla. So, I decided to turn to my Twitter friends and get some reading recommendations for books that feature heroines with color and BAM! the universe provides. 🙂
I’m a visual learner, so I decided to upload my lists on Pinterest. That way, I can add as I go. Then, I went crazy and added two more lists, one general Youth Lit, and another for picture books.
If you are on Pinterest, you can check out the lists and follow them here:
Picture and chapter books that feature girls of color as the lead character.
Upper elementary and secondary reads that we like.
Picture books that we love.
