Great things are happening at Multicultural Children’s Book Day headquarters!
*Our Poster Reveal: The official MCBD2019 poster courtesy of author/illustrator, Julie Flett, is ready to take the world by storm! Needless to say, this poster’s beauty blew us away. Go here to read Julie’s story and download a copy for your reading area, library or classroom.
*2019 Sponsorships are OPEN. Go here to lock in your spot (deadline for Sponsor sign-up is 12/15/18). Pass the word!
*Love diverse kids/YA books? So much that you’d like to review one for MCBD2019? Perfect, because we’d like to give you one!
Book Reviewer signup is now open and as long as reviewers have the capability to post a review on a blog, Facebook (Pages only, no Profiles), Instagram, YouTube, and Amazon, they will be able to get a free diverse book to review for our celebration. GO HERE to sign up.
*Our 2018/2019 Classroom Poverty Kit is ready for download!
Our Poverty Doesn’t Discriminate: Understanding Poverty in America kit is ready to be downloaded and enjoyed by parents, librarians, and educators. Go HERE to download.
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.
Our official hashtag is #ReadYourWorld
