In the past months, many organizations have published lists of YA and kids books focused on diversity, understanding the immigrant experience and developing empathy.
For a project I’m working on, I merged a selection of these lists (see below) and created a LibraryThing widget to display all the titles. Feel free to copy the code below and use this widget for your own website. Or download this text file with all the ISBNs and create your own widget in LibraryThing or GoodReads or whatever else you want to do with the list.
Please give credit to the following sources:

- Core Collection: Picture-Book Refugee and Immigration Stories
- 19 books to help children find hope and strength in stressful times: A librarian’s list
- Diverse YA Fiction from Micro-Presses

- 13 Picture Books to Help Kids Embrace Empathy
If you’d like to use this book display widget, you can copy the code below. Please be sure to give credit to the sources above or link back here for those sources.
Handy Tip: The links in the widget go back to LibraryThing. If you’re using the Chrome browser and have installed the Library Extension, you’ll get links back to your catalog. This works in GoodReads and Amazon too. This post has more info on adult book lists and that Chrome Extension: Powerful Book Lists & Handy Library Extension for Chrome
