Helps us fund off-line classroom celebration kits for teachers!
We want to help teachers celebrate our holiday by giving them a Read Your World Teacher Celebration Kit consisting of 3 diverse children’s books, book swag for their students, and a teacher’s guide for one of the books so that they can celebrate in their classrooms.

October is Bilingual Child Month. It’s a time to celebrate the linguistic and cultural diversity among us. This celebration resonates with parents who are on the journey in passing on their heritage languages to their children, and those who are committed to providing their kids the opportunity to acquire a world language through bilingual or immersion schools, homeschools, and bilingual/multilingual resources. As technology draws communities closer, celebrating Bilingual Child Month is a step towards connecting cultures in our society.
In honor of Bilingual Child Month in October, Read Your World is thrilled to shine a spotlight on the magic and importance of bilingual books. Through a series of featured events, we are on a mission to raise awareness about the benefits of bilingual books for children, connect with families, educators, and children’s book enthusiasts, and celebrate multilingual culture. This event will be facilitated by Author and Board of Trustees Member, Amanda Hsiung-Blodgett.

As the proud parent of an LGBTQIA+ child, there is no greater excitement than Pride month. For 30 days people hang Pride flags, hold events, and post all over social media how much they love and support the LGBTQIA+ community. It’s a validating and confidence-boosting time for my child and so many others.
