This paper explores the issues in developing international children's library collections. Although promoting global awareness among children is no longer easily debatable, many libraries, big and small, rich and poor, are lagging behind when it comes to implementing the concept of having a collection of international children's literature. In addition, this paper suggests some strategies to diversify international children's collections by incorporating resources in variety of formats such as print, digital, and artifacts. Further, it lists some important resources for librarians to look at as they work towards developing their international children's library collections.
