Diversity in Children’s Books

Loving Lion Books seeks to address the lack of diversity in children’s books.

We are parents who were surprised and disappointed to see how few children's books feature children and families of color. We want our children and all children to see themselves, their loved ones, and the beautiful diverse world in the books they read. 


To do this we created books that allow families to choose characters that most reflect their family or their world. Our illustrations aren't exact matches to our customers, but rather, are more representational. Your child's library will be filled with characters that look like the people they see every day.  


“Love Family” is our first book. It features characters of color throwing an everyday celebration with a big family meal. The story captures the love and fun that goes with it. 


“Love Family” is just the beginning. Loving Lion Books will create more books, including those that feature children of all religions and different family structures.
