The inaugural Multicultural Children's Book Day: Celebrating Diversity in Children's Literature is going to be on January 27, 2014. I am honored to be one of the official bloggers taking part in this celebration! Bloggers all over the country will be participating by posting book reviews, hosting give-aways, sharing activities, etc. so that parents and teachers have tools to celebrate this day with the children in their care!
There are wonderful sponsors for this event as well! The main sponsors are Wisdom Tales Press, Lee& Low Books, Chronicle Books, and Susan Daniel Fayad: Author of My Grandfather’s Masbaha. I am a huge fan of Lee & Low Books already, which you can see by the number of their books I recommend in my multicultural book list! I am eager to get to know the other sponsors as well!
So, I hope you will join me in "Celebrating Diversity in Children's Literature" on January 27th! But more importantly, my hope is that you'll be inspired to infuse your homes, classrooms, and libraries with great multicultural books! Stay tuned for all sorts of related posts in the coming days!
