Our team of educators and parents search high and low for the most amazing diverse books. We read through hundreds!
Only the most exceptional stories make it through our 5-6 month analyzing and testing process.
Once our books are selected, we create discussion questions and activities to help the book (and its important themes) come alive at home.
Our books proudly and prominently feature under-represented identities in children’s literature. We love stories about characters living at the intersection of identities too (e.g. a story about a gender-nonconforming and Indigenous kiddo)!
If a main character is part of an underrepresented group, then we prefer the author/illustrator identifies as part of the same group.
We love stories that defy gender stereotypes – girls that love trains, and boys that love dressing like queens, and kids that live beyond the binary.
We celebrate all bodies and brains, and we love featuring family structures often ignored by mainstream publishing too!
While I was working at BabyList.com, I noticed it was too hard to find books featuring, and by, Black, Indigenous and people of color, LGBTQI+ families, and folks with disabilities (to name a few).
I felt called to do something, so I quit my job and started interviewing families asking how we could help them diversify their bookshelves. The feedback was overwhelming: the people wanted a “feminist book club for kids,” and so LittleFeminist.com was born.
Each and every month, we curate the best diverse books the globe has to offer, so you can focus on raising your brave AND kind humans.
You can count on us to spread the stories too often ignored by mainstream publishing.
And when we can’t find the books we know you want on your family’s shelf, well…we might end up publishing them ourselves.
Here’s to raising good humans one story at a time,
