Welcome to Colorín Colorado’s BookFinder!

Using this tool, you can search for books by categories such as age, language, country, and theme. Our collection includes books for young children, older children, middle grades, and young adults. Our books are also organized into themed booklists that you are welcome to browse and share.

Note: A diverse panel of authors and educators has advised us in our development of this tool; we realize, however, that there many different ways to represent diverse identities and life experiences, and we have made every effort to create a tool that is both inclusive and user-friendly. We are still adding books from our collection to this tool.

Cultures, nationalities, and communities represented by book’s characters and creators
Includes award winners, as well as honor books
This list includes Indigenous Nations throughout the Americas. Please note that tribal nations are sovereign nations.
