Amazing illustration by artist Tina Kugler about the lack of diversity in children’s literature in 2012. Kugler’s illustration is based on the findings by the Cooperative Children’s Book Center at the University Wisconsin-Madison which analyzed 3,600 last year and discovered that less than 8% of the total titles they received from publishers were about people of color. At A Mighty Girl, we’re committed to showcasing a diverse range of Mighty Girl characters in our book collection. In our “Multicultural Fiction” section, you can use the filter on the left menu, to sort our collection by numerous characteristics, including ethnicity such as African American or Native American or location such as Europe or Latin America.
