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:
