Multicultural Picture Books  ages 0-11+                         June 2010


Eileen Browne's choice                                                           



As a children’s author and illustrator, I delight in reading picture books and am particularly interested in those which portray a rich diversity of people and cultures.


This list is based on simple criteria, the most important of which being what engages children and holds their attention from the front cover to the back. They are all ‘a good read’.


The books are full-colour illustrated paperback fiction, published in the UK, unless otherwise stated. Titles known to be out of print are marked OP. They are often still available from libraries or can be found on line. If a book that you want is out of print, write to the publisher and ask if they are going to reprint it.


No part of this text/list may be sold in any form whatsoever.
