Children and Young Adult Literature

This guide is set up specifically to assist the students with their assignments in the course, LS 3305 Children's Literature.

You can use the book lists from the Colours of Us website and/or the Diversity Books website (below) to locate children's books by age group and ethnicity. Once you come across a title that looks interesting, search for it in our library's catalog to see if it is available.

Diverse Book Finder







Diverse Book Finder is a search engine for locating children's books on diversity. Please note that not all of these titles are available in the Zeta Collection. You can check our Library Catalog to see if we own it.
