I like
Nathalie Mvondo's page better (call me shallow, I like the pictures...)
If you want the bibliography for ordering,
Debbie Reese's list on Tumblr is probably best.

Subject: An inclusive Summer Reading List

Good morning!

Early in 2015, Edith Campbell invited a handful of colleagues who share a
passion for children, literacy and diversity to work with her on a Summer
Reading list. She invited us to suggest titles we had read and wanted to
recommend. As conversations took place, the focus of the list became clear.

Books we recommend are ones written or illustrated by Native Americans or
writers/illustrators of color. We want readers to become familiar with the
names on the list and their creative work. As you'll see, not all the books
are stories about Native Americans or People of Color, and some are ones in
which characters are LGBTQ or disabled.

We are Edith Campbell, Sarah Park Dahlen, Sujei Lugo, Lyn Miller-Lachmann,
Debbie Reese, and Ebony Elizabeth Thomas.

We are sharing the list as widely as possible across media platforms to
reach as many people as possible. We hope you'll order these books if you
don't already have them, and, we hope you'll feature them in your summer
programming. We're also working on a pdf. Here's where we've shared the
list so far. Please feel free to share this email and/or any of the links
below in your own emails to colleagues.
