Three Picture Books Spotlighting Strong Women of Colour

Hello lovelies!

I believe that children need books that show people like themselves. This is one of the many reasons why diversity is important. Here are some children’s books that show strong female role models who are also women of colour. (This is by no means an all-encompassing list, but are simply a top few- I may continue on with this list at a later point, since this is so important!)

These all encourage girls to embrace themselves and reach their fullest potential, and are all fairly affordable also.

Malala’s Magic Pencil, by Malala Yousafzai (for the young writer)

Firebird, by Misty Copeland (for the young dancer)

I Love My Hair! by Natasha Tarpley (for the young girl with natural hair)

What do you think about these books? What would you add to the list? Comment below and let me know!
