The Results

This wonderful day came to a close as bloggers, publishers and authors converged on the Multicultural Children’s Book Day site for one Big Gigantic Linky Party and Giveaway. To date we have over 200 different suggestions for multicultural titles for kids. Please check out our Link Party and create a new reading list for your family!


In Conclusion

Our mission for this event was to not only raise awareness for the kid’s books that celebrate diversity, but to get more of these of books into classrooms and libraries. Thanks to extended media attention, social media and the help of all involved with Multicultural Children’s Book Day, we feel we achieved all of that {and then some!} and we couldn’t be prouder!
