If you feel like you are shouting into the void when it comes to marketing your multicultural children’s or YA book, we have an idea that just may be the ticket!
Book launches and special author events are a great marketing tool and an excellent time to gain the visibility that is critical to driving traffic and selling books. That’s why MCBD is offering a limited-time chance for publishers and authors to leverage the buzz and reach of our site and social media for their own campaigns.
Our highly successful online event garners HUGE social media share impressions from January 25 through January 27th and the buzz continues all year-long. We also love any opportunity to support diverse book authors while also keeping interesting book-related information in front of our social following and loyal readership.
With that in mind, we’ve created our new Multicultural Children’s Book Day Sponsored Post Package as a way to leverage our robust 260,000 strong social media following and give authors and books the boost they need.
Intrigued? We hope so! Our Sponsored Post option is only available Feb-September so don’t delay. You can find examples of Sponsored Post that we’ve recently completed here …
…and here. Good stuff 🙂

Our FREE Classroom Empathy Kit is ready to download and share!
Now more than ever, a message of hope, compassion, empathy and understanding is needed.
Now more than ever, children need to see themselves reflected in the pages of the books they read. Readers of all ages need to be able to “read their world” to both see themselves, and those are who different, whether by culture, religion, sexual orientation, special needs or ethnicity.
Now more than ever, we need to come together as a nation of beautifully diverse people.
Multicultural Children’s Book Day is proud to offer an initiative and holiday that encourages discovery, hope, acceptance and exploration through the pages of diverse children’s literature.
As our fifth Multicultural Children’s Book Day holiday approaches on January 27, 2018, we are thrilled to have you as part of our amazing community of supporters! With enthusiasm, optimism and hope, we are preparing for MCBD 2018 and hope you will, again, join our celebration of diversity through children’s books.
Thank you for cultivating understanding, kindness, inclusion and exploration of this beautiful world in your classroom. [Read more…]
