A Dozen Great Multicultural Blogs

I follow some great blogs, as you can see by the list in my sidebar, but here are a few that focus specifically on ethnic and cultural diversity in the Kid/YA book world.
Are there others you would add to this list? Please leave them in the comments.

  3. SI BookDragon Terry Hong here ... Mitali, thanks SOOO very much for including BookDragon. My second 'awww, shucks' moment in a week ...

    LIBRARY JOURNAL recently sent kudos my way, calling BookDragon, "whip-smart, charming, and not to be crossed."

    I'm so, so thrilled (and always a bit surprised) that I'm not babbling completely to my own silly self! Thanks again indeed!

  4. Thanks so much for remembering me.

    I really like Edi Campbell's blog
    Crazy Quilts

    A while back she did one of the best not so obvious (Freakonomic) book pairings I've seen in a minute

  7. I was familiar with several of these - but many thanks for introducing me to some new ones that look great!
    I hope soon to join you and these great blogs to be another space to talk about culture, gender, sexuality, class, etc. in children's literature:
