So you want to take up the #WorldKidLitMonth challenge to read and review a children’s book in translation into English … but how do you find a good book to read?
You can search this site by keyword, by country or by language of origin for translated books. Below are some book lists to give you ideas ~ you might find yourself setting off on an around-the-world tour by book!
We’re adding lists all the time (and soon: maps!) but please tweet us (@worldkidlit) if there’s a country whose children’s books you’d like to know about. We’ll do our best to help!
