Before we just in and start sharing the latest in amazing multicultural books that have come across our desks, we want to say this…
Thank you for supporting the diverse children’s literacy initiative Multicultural Children’s Book Day! Our 8th celebration will take place on January 29, 2021, and we cannot wait for the celebration to begin.
We always welcome quality, relevant, and literacy-related contributions from writers, authors, publishers, and organizations. We’ve had some really, really cool. If you are looking for guest posts about diverse books that focus on timely topics and unique language, there have been many on Multicultural Children’s Book Day blog recently.
Here are a few of the latest:
Author Idan Ravin shares his wonderful book about patience and one of our new mantras in life #FindYourCornbread HERE.
Author John Stickler shares his story of a surprise international prize for his delightful diverse book Maya and the Turtle HERE.
Language Lizard has some ammmaaazzzing language tools, books, and resources for teachers, distance learners, and homeschoolers HERE.
We love it when we have guests on our blog that showcase books with hard-to-find languages.
We are thrilled that authors Monica Hernandez and Bilen Haile stopped by to share their Sri Lankan kidlit book…
… and we felt like we hit the lotto when Sandra Amoako stopped by to share her Ghanian (Twi) language book for beginning readers.
In our opinion, there can never be enough kids’ books available on the topic of unique family dynamics.
Kendra and Claire-Voe Ocampo, authors of the new LGBTQ children’s picture book, Mighty May Won’t Cry Today have penned a beautiful diverse story a little girl and her two moms that should be on every bookshelf.
