2017 Diversity Reading Challenge: How’d You Do in March?


Diversity Reading Challenge Button

So March has come and gone; let’s check in and see how we did in the Diversity Reading Challenge, ok? Here’s what I read:

Bud Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis. My review is here.

Wonderful You: An Adoption Story by Lauren McLaughlin; illustrated by Meilo So. You’ll find my review here.

The Rock Maiden: A Chinese Tale of Love and Loyalty by Natasha Yim Illustrated by Pirkko Vainio. Find the review here.

Bud Not Buddy counts as a book written by or for African American young men. Adoption, unfortunately isn’t one of the topics of this year’s Diversity Reading Challenge but since the family depicted in the book are brown skinned we will assume they are people of color; so it counts. I also think adoption counts as diversity. And finally, a book containing an Asian main character is satisfied with Rock Maiden, which is about a Chinese family.

How’d you do? Share your titles with me, I’d love to hear them.
