September is World Kid Lit Month, an annual celebration of world literature for children and young adults that shines a spotlight on books that have been translated into English from other languages.

The World Kid Lit website provides a number of resources to support schools that are interested in exploring literature in translation as a way to provide a more diverse and inclusive reading experience and promote empathy and understanding:

  • Read the World booklists.
  • A database of children’s and YA books in translation that you can search by country of origin or source language.
  • Ideas on how to celebrate World Kid Lit Month.

Cost: Free.

About World Kid Lit Month: World Kid Lit Month is run by Project World Kid Lit, a global community of volunteers that aims to highlight great literature from around the world and encourage diversity in English-language publishing in order to provide children and young people with a richer representation of the multicultural and multilingual world in which we live.
