Please read the list description before adding to it. As a parent of a child of color (and a longtime LT member; this account is for my child's books) I try very hard to find books that have kids of color as ordinary kids.

Is the intent for the book to have only children of color? I'm not familiar enough with all the books on your list to tell.

Gyo Fujikawa books feature a range of ethnicities playing together on just about every page, and were favorites of both myself many years ago and more recently my own children.

The intent is that the main characters include kids of color - one non-white kid in a group of otherwise all-white kids doesn't count. It sounds like your books would qualify, though I haven't read them myself.
