Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want My Future Children to Read

14 Nov

There are so many amazing books available to kids in this day and age. It was hard to pick just ten, but I focused on ten titles that show a wide diversity in terms of culture, gender, race, ability, socioeconomic status and more. It’s important for kids to see all different type of people in books and I think these titles are a great place to start for middle grade readers looking for diversity.


  1. Amina’s Voice by Hena Khan
  2. Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate
  3. Crossover by Kwame Alexander
  4. The First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Pérez
  5. George by Alex Gino
  6. Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai
  7. Lily and Dunkin by Donna Gephart
  8. The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher by Dana Alison Levy
  9. Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper
  10. Wonder by R.J. Palacio

    Thanks for this list. My son has special needs and I have found that kids are very accepting once they get used to it. Exposing them to diversity at a young age is very important.

      I find if you explain to them differences on a very basic level, kids accept them as is and go on with their lives… I wish more adults could do that!

    I’ve read six of these. The ones I haven’t read belong on my WTR list. All wonderful titles.
