Children's Books Depicting Multiracial Families

If you are part of a multiracial family, it can be a struggle to find books to share with your children that show families like theirs. This is especially true if you are looking for books that depict multiracial families that aren't about being a multiracial family! I hope this list can provide a resource for families to find new books and to share their favorites. Of course, all children can and should enjoy these books!
