The Second Annual Multicultural Children’s Book Day
(January 27, 2015)
There are two important people on the web who are the primary organizers and spokespersons for the Multicultural Children’s Book Day, now into its second year: Valarie Budayr of the website “Jump Into a Book” who is a best-selling children’s author of The Fox Diaries: The Year the Foxes Came to our Garden and The Ultimate Guide To Charlie and The Chocolate Factory; and Mia Wenjen from the site “Pragmatic Mom,” who is a Harvard grad with a love of children’s books (picture books through YA) and who likes to sneak in teachable moments in art, science, math, foreign language and language arts.

There have been activities centered around multicultural events in local schools and organizations all around the United States, with many continuing past the actual day of the annual event. We commend Valarie, Mia, and others who have worked so hard on this project, and we look forward to more exciting events in the days, months, and years to come!

Here are some ways that teachers or parents can help celebrate the first annual “Multicultural Children’s Book Day,” any day of the year:

  • Visit The Multicultural Children’s Book Day page (use the links above) at “Jump Into a Book” and “Pragmatic Mom.”
  • Visit the Multicultural Books for Kids Pinterest Board for more reading ideas.
  • Have children bring in their favorite multicultural book to school on this day and share it with the class. If not today, sometime in the near future.
  • Check out the wonderful multicultural books and booklists on “Jump Into a Book” and “Pragmatic Mom.”
  • Create a Multicultural Children’s Book Day display around the classroom or library.
  • Have a conversation with your children, students or fellow educators as to what diversity in children's literature really means. This event was created to raise awareness and start a dialogue.
  • Gather up your own ideas and share them with us and other parents, teachers, and librarians for use in next year’s Multicultural Children’s Book Day in particular, or for any other day.
  • Try to read a book with a multi-cultural theme tonight for the bedtime story!
