Summer Reading List

2018 Diverse Summer Reading List for Grades PreK-8 from Lee & Low Books

Early in 2015, librarian Edith Campbell invited a handful of colleagues sharing the passions for children, literacy, and diversity to create a summer reading list. Written or illustrated by Native Americans or writers/illustrators of color, not all the books are stories about Native Americans or People of Color. Some are ones in which characters are LGBTQ or disabled. By Edith Campbell, Sarah Park Dahlen, Sujei Lugo, Lyn Miller-Lachmann, Nathalie Mvondo, Debbie Reese, and Ebony Elizabeth Thomas.
