Shared booklist

BKLYN Bookmatch: Diverse Kids Doing Their Thing

"Books for children that have brown/queer/disabled/etc main characters but are not about those identities as issues. No famous black or latinx personalities, no "x has two dads," just books that present a world where differences are normal. Not celebrated, just normal."
