MULTICULTURAL CHILDREN’S BOOK DAY LOOKING TO BREAK NEW RECORD
– SURPASS 26 MILLION SHARES
Multicultural Children’s Book Day (MCBD) is just two years old, but founders Mia Wenjen and Valerie Budayr have achieved tremendous success and online support for diversity awareness. They’ve put thousands of free books into kids’ hands and they’re changing lives with their message. Last year on January 27th, Multicultural Children’s Book Day, they — along with support from corporations, teams of bloggers, teachers and librarians — made multicultural book news trend on Twitter at #ReadYourWorld.
Now, partnered with Junior Library Guild and even more corporate and author sponsors, they are looking to move the needle even further. Plus, with their new $25 MCDB Friends sponsorship program, everyone can participate by giving a shout out to their favorite diversity books for less than the cost of dinner out.
Visit www.multiculturalbookday.com for resource lists of thousands of books about diverse cultures and issues. Topics include Teaching Compassion, Mixed Race Celebrations, Combating Racism, Immigration, Islam, Selecting Diversity Board Books, Activities for the Day of the Dead, and Celebrating Chinese New Year. There are also books lists about cultures in every corner of the world and that tie into our daily news headlines.
Join us January 27th to effect change.
