Today is the day, join the kid lit community in celebrating cultural diversity in children’s books. The festivities take place here: http://multiculturalchildrensbookday.com/
About Multicultural Chidlren’s Book Day, as stated on the group’s website:
Children’s reading and play advocates Valarie Budayr from Jump Into a Book and Mia Wenjen from Pragmatic Mom have teamed up to create an ambitious (and much needed) national event and non-profit initiative.
This is an incredibly needed initiative and wonderful cause to support, don’t you think? If you agree, the organization is open for donations that supports reading programs in the classroom, as well as a donation book center, just to mention a few programs. The website includes links to relevant book reviews.
I hope to this, very soon, be a worldwide movement.
Happy Multicultural Children’s Book Day, let’s make it an every day thing. 😉
