Great things are happening at Multicultural Children’s Book Day headquarters and our Sponsor lineup is growing by the DAY. You can view current Medallion Level Sponsors and Author Sponsors on the website here and here.
THEN…we are excited to announce a new Added bonus for Platinum and Super Platinum Sponsorship levels!
Along with all the other perks that go along with our two highest levels of Sponsorship, the MCBD Team has “sweetened the deal” with this impressive bonus.
Those who sign up for Platinum or Super Platinum level for MCBD2019 will be enjoying the opportunity of providing up to 12 guest posts (written by the sponsor) that can be used on the MCBD blog over the course of 12 months!
This is a big deal! On any given day the MCBD blog gets around 600-800 hits and during the month before and after our online holiday that number triples. Guest posts are also “evergreen” which means they live on the MCBD blog forever. This benefit is perfect for book launches, company news, special sales or announcements of new books!
P.S. The deadline for ALL Sponsor sign-ups for is 12/15/18
Get the full scoop on all levels of Sponsorship for MCBD2019 here.
FUN FACT: Did you know that, since our non-profit was established over six years ago, we have gotten over 4,000 free diverse books into the hands of young readers?

REMINDER: We’d like to remind everyone of the 2019 date change (and future dates for MCBD as well).
Instead of being “every January 27th,” we are shifting to a “last Friday in January” focus so we don’t interfere with International Holocaust Remembrance Day. This change just felt right and we are glad to make this positive move. So, the next Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2019 will be on January 25, 2019.
As always, this non-profit thanks you for helping us to continue our mission of getting diverse books into classrooms and the hands of young readers while also helping authors and publishers shine the spotlight on their work.
