As many already know, the mission of the MCBD is to promote diversity in children’s literature. However, neurodiversity is often overlooked, which author Sivan Hong is determined to change. Her series of books were created to help neurodiverse children feel represented in the books they read. Her Super Fun Day Books highlight neurodiverse kids positively and work to normalize what it is like for them in the classroom.

As we approach our fifth MCBD, I am excited to report that we have so many amazing things planned for our 2018 online event (1/27/18). , This holiday is usually just a one day event, but because since the day of this children’s book-related holiday lands on a Saturday, we decided to get creative on how we can make this one-day event a week-long party!
A huge part of what we do is work with authors and publishers to not only review and give publicity to their multicultural books, but to also spend hundreds of “women-hours” and thousands of dollars to get those books into the hands of young readers.
