Today is the 4th Multicultural Children’s Book Day!

Today is Multicultural Children's Book Day! 

The mission of MCBD is to raise awareness for the kid’s books that celebrate diversity and to get more of these of books into classrooms and libraries.

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. Here's how you can celebrate and make the most of this event:

Read diverse books: Check out my review of I Am Jackie Robinson

Win diversity book bundles at the Twitter Party tonight! They’re giving away 100+ children’s books from 9pm to 10pm EST. RSVP here. Use hashtag: #ReadYourWorld.

Get your a copy of Read Your World: A Guide to Multicultural Children’s Books for Parents and Educators. It’s FREE today through January 31st!

Get the free Classroom Kindness Kit? It includes Be a Hero Be Kind poster by Jarrett Krosoczka, a diversity kindness book list for ages 2 through 12, and classroom kindness activities.
