12 Diverse Picture Books Featuring Supportive Parents
A list of books for young readers who feature diverse families with supportive parents.
1. Jabari Jumps by Gaia Cornwall
Jabari’s a great jumper, so he’s not scared to jump off the diving board at all! Right? Set at the city pool, with the steady support of his dad, a young boy explores fear and bravery. [picture book, ages 4 and up]
2. Yo Soy Muslim: A Father’s Letter to His Daughter by Mark Gonzales, illustrated by Mehrdokht Amini
Gonzales’ tender and lyrical writing paired with Amini’s magical illustrations makes for one gorgeous book that explores identity. A beautiful “mirror book” for Muslim, or Latin American families, as well as a beautiful “window book”/ introduction to the Muslim faith and indigenous Latin American culture. [picture book, ages 4 and up]
