Analyses of Diversity in Children’s Picture Books

Recognized as a 2021 Best Digital Tool by the American Association of School Librarians, Diverse BookFinder is a comprehensive collection of children’s picture books featuring Black and Indigenous people and People of Color (BIPOC). A team of academics and professionals whose focus is on race and culture in the fields of psychology, children’s books, library science, and gender studies have cataloged and analyzed more than 3,000 trade picture books published since 2002. The result is an online searchable database that makes it easy for anyone to locate and explore children’s picture books featuring BIPOC characters. It is also a source of real-time data on who (which BIPOC characters) are depicted in trade picture books and how (what messages these stories send) to enable deeper conversation and change.

Some of the most recent additions to the collection include 48 Grasshopper Estates (2021) by Sara de Waal; A Boy Named Isamu (2021) by James Yang; and A Day for Rememberin’ (2021) by Leah Henderson.
