Kitaabworld was a website focused on South Asian representation in children’s literature. It was operational from May 2016 through October 2019. This blog is meant to be a resource for educators, librarians and parents interested in books on South Asian culture.
We ran an online bookstore with a curated collection of diverse books from South Asia,
including Room in your Heart and The Boy Who Asked Why
published by Kitaabworld!
We published monthly recommended book lists on various topics,
author interviews, publisher profiles, lesson plans and more!
We launched a Counter Islamophobia Through Stories campaign and
conducted many presentations, multicultural storytimes and diversity training!
