#RaisingReaders Monday: Multicultural Children’s Book Day

Today is Multicultural Children’s Book Day. How are you going to celebrate?

Kids of all ages, colors, and ethnic backgrounds must be able to “see themselves” and “find themselves” in the books that they read. Books that celebrate diversity through ideas, language, race, religion, and tradition must be written, published and read to kids. It is so important to represent kids from all around the world and to learn about others as we offer children ways to connect to the world around them.

You must read Katey’s post on Raising Readers Monday today to learn more about the importance of books of color. You can find her post here:

About Prairie Garden Girl

I am a wife who is adored by my Sweet Perry. Together we are parents to five boys and grandparents to seven unique grands. Pa Perry and Oma Sue love instilling the love of learning in the hearts of Johannah, Joshua & Jaxon; Henry & Charlotte and Lily & Lane. I am a reader. I am an aspiring children's picture book writer. I am a creator who sews and paints with acrylics and watercolors and sketches with colored pencil. I am an educator to hundreds of students, throughout the years. I am a cyclist on a pink Marin Portofina, and a 5K jogger. Perry and I are organic gardeners and enjoy homesteading on the Illinois prairie. Life is a beautiful ride with my Sweet P. Together, Perry and I feel life is a journey filled with joy. We want to live our lives by leaving the world a better place.
