The 4th Multicultural Children’s Book Day has come and gone and as expected, it was a HUGE success. We couldn’t be more proud of our team, our sponsors, our reviewers, the young readers, moms, educators, librarians, authors, illustrators, publishers and organizations that help us continue to do what we do 🙂
As you can imagine, there were MANY sweet and touching moments throughout this special day (and the weeks leading up to it) here are a some of our favorites:

Amazing #readyourworld gatherings
P.S. We also had all the kids make these cute diversity/love bracelets. I just love these and thought I would send a pic of that as well.
Instagram was all a-buzz!
