Historically, the CCBC has compiled annual statistics on the number of books published annually by and about people of color and from First/Native Nations. Beginining in 2018, we began documenting numbers around other aspects of diversity and respresentation in children's and young adult literature, including LGBTQ, and (Dis)Ability. CCBC Resources CCBC Bibliographies and Booklists: We strive to integrate multicultural literature into all of our work here at the CCBC.
