2017 MCBD #ReadYourWorld {Resource}

A Crafty Arab Multicultural Children Book Day 2017I was recently asked to be a Co-Host for the Multicultural Children Book Day (MCCBD), to be held January 27, 2017. In a nutshell, a MCCBD Co-Host is like an ambassador for the event and the non-profit work that they do.


The mission of MCCBD is to not only bring raise awareness for the kid’s books that celebrate diversity, but to get more of these of books into classrooms and libraries.


I am so honored to have been asked, since last year I found out about it too late to participate. I can’t wait to see the list of books/authors/publishers that will be offered this year.  More information will be coming up, so be sure to sign up for the newsletter to keep updated here.


Check out the hashtage #ReadYourWorld on Instagram and Twitter to read some fantastic past reviews of diverse children’s books.
