Just a quick post to say that (as one of my Bloggiesta self-assigned tasks) I've made a page up at the top of my blog that lists all the reviews I've written of multicultural fantasy and science fiction books for kids and teens. I have a label for these reviews--"reading in color," but since I use that label for other types of post, I wanted to pull out the reviews so that people could find them if they wanted to.
I am rather dismayed to see that I have only 33 books listed. If I continue to write about three book review posts a week, that's about 70 more reviews for this year (which doesn't sound like many at all, but can't really be helped). It seems possible that I can get at least thirty more books on that list by the end of the year, especially if I go back and write reviews for books I've already read...
(for more discussion about multicultural children's books, here's a great post at Shelf Talker--"The Elephant in the Room", and at Hunger Mountain, you can read the differing viewpoints of authors Tanita Davis ("Reflected Faces") and Mitali Perkins ("Teens do Judge a Book by its Cover").
Recommendations for multicultural sci fi/fantasy always gratefully received!
