One of the easiest ways to discover multicultural children and YA Books is using the database, NoveList Plus. Watch the video below to learn how! The link to access NoveList Plus and helpful reminders are included on this page below the video.
For each category you select, choose a value in the corresponding drop-down just to the right.
I recommend if you are looking for books with diverse characters to set Character as one or more of: Culturally diverse, LGBTQIA diverse, Religiously diverse, and Ability diverse.
Then, make another category Storyline with the Own voices value. This means that the book will be written by someone who identifies within the same marginalized group as the character.
