The clock is ticking, the calendar is flipping and MCBD 2017 is getting closer and closer!
Things are coming together beautifully as the MCBD Team works frantically to pull in more children’s book reviewers and get teachers and classrooms signed up for the Free Diversity Book for Your Classroom Library campaign. There is SO MUCH exciting things going on and this online event is shaping up to be yet another exceptionally successful celebration of diversity in children’s literature. We are also very excited about the quality Medallion Level Sponsors and Author Sponsors who have already signed on to be part of this event on 1/27/17.
We are also thrilled to be working with the Children’s Book Council to spotlight 24 diversity authors and illustrators in celebration of Multicultural Children’s Book Day! They will each be sharing eight multicultural children’s books during the months of January and February.
