Weekend Links: The Thrill of Multicultural Children’s Book Day

Of course the big news this week was the occurrence and success of Multicultural Children’s Book Day on 1/27. This huge online nation event continues to grow and be successful beyond our wildest dreams. As you can imagine, it is a monumental amount of work for myself, co-founder Mia Wenjen and our support team of Becky and Susan M. It is such an important event and such a rewarding project. Read more about our mission here.

I love this wonderful video that Platinum Sponsor StoryQuest Books was kind enough to create for the event.

There were SO MANY amazing book review with activities offered up by our review bloggers in honor of this event. In fact, if you visit our MCCBD Link-up, you’ll see over 250 multicultural book reviews from several hundred reviewers.

Here are some of my top picks.
