On Sale Now : New Releases

Below are all the children's and young adult books published in Januray that I am aware of which feature characters of color or a diverse cast. Usually I post this list at the beginning of the month, since I showcased 2012 titles I will looking forward to on the Dec. 31, decided to push this post back until the end of the month.
