Welcome to Weekend Links! As one of the co-founders of Multicultural Children’s Book Day and I pleased to share that planning for the 2016 event is well under way! We are working like busy little bees to update the MCCBD website, add new book-inspired events like our upcoming Classroom Reading Challenge (more details later on that).

Reading is always an important part of our children’s lives no matter what time of year it is and so is helping our young readers learn about other cultures, religions and traditions through the pages of these books. Here are some great booklists and resources that I have discovered during my www travels this week:
