Count Down To MCCBD - What Is It?

Multicultural Children's Book Day 2017!!!

The big Multicultural Children's Book Day celebration is just 4 days away. If you haven't heard about this special day then you've really been missing out. Kristi's Book Nook has participated in this even since it began. I love sharing diverse literature and reading it too! Now is the time to learn about and share in all of the fun of this wonderful event.

Mission & History

Our mission is 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.
Children’s reading and play advocates Valarie Budayr from Jump Into a Book and Mia Wenjen from Pragmatic Mom have teamed up to create an ambitious (and much needed) national event.  On January 27th, 2014 Jump into a Book and Pragmatic Mom presented their very first Multicultural Children’s Book Day as a way of celebrating diversity in children’s books. The results and support overwhelming as authors, publishers, parents, teachers, bloggers and librarians joined forces to offer up an online event designed to shine the spotlight on diversity in children’s literature.
