Things are just humming along in a crazy-busy when it comes to prep for yet another Multicultural Children’s Book Day holiday! There is SO MUCH exciting things going on. We already have over 250 children’s book reviewers signed up and some truly impressive 2017 Medallion Level Sponsors and Authors Sponsors already on board. It’s shaping up to be yet another exceptionally successful celebration of diversity in children’s literature.
We are also thrilled to be working with the Children’s Book Council to spotlight 24 diversity authors and illustrators in celebration of Multicultural Children’s Book Day! They will each be sharing eight multicultural children’s books during the months of January and February.
