The #WeNeedDiverseBooks Campaign has launched a summer reading series to help you diversify the books you recommend to kids and teens. For example,

If you liked Mia Hamm: Winnders Never Quit, then read Soccer Star by Mina Javaherbin next because "both picture books for young readers involve sporty characters who face setbacks, but ultimately learn how to shoot for a worthy goal."

If you like Eleanor & Park, then read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz next because "both of these YA novels feature love stories between seeming opposites."
