Shades of Love is an offshoot of the Black, Biracial & Multiracial: Culture & Diversity Group. Our aim is to provide listings and encourage dialogue for families, educators, and all others who are interested in more representative and diverse literature and reference resources for children, from babies and toddlers to pre-teens and young adults.
Finding good books that are diverse and multicultural is a challenge. And YA? Good luck. That is why Shades of Love is here.
Please don't assume members are already aware of great titles including reference resources. If you have found a book you enjoy, or have found a text useful and relevant, share it with the group in discussion and on our shelves. If you've seen something and are unsure, let us know. Hopefully someone among us will purchase the text and report back or another may have access through a library and will report to the group.
“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.”

HUSH! by Mingfung Ho
I would like to recommend this book to the group. I am new and not sure how to do this. This book when accompanied with the CD is wonderful for children!

I haven't heard of this book. What is it that you like so much about it? Is it a lullaby book for bedtime?

The mother goes around asking all of the animals to be quiet one by one so she can get her child to sleep. The book uses different animal sounds than what is primarily used here. My son loves the animal sounds and especially the animals. In the end the mother is so tired from trying to get the environment just right she falls asleep but her baby stays awake. It can be a lullaby book for bedtime.
