We are excited to announce the release of our new Language Lizard Living in Harmony Books. These books use colorful multicultural illustrations and simple text to explain concepts of diversity, kindness, and friendship. Illustrations include diverse characters and settings from around the world, allowing children to see themselves in the book and learn about the world around them.
Language Lizard was a proud Platinum Sponsor of Multicultural Children’s Book Day (MCBD) this past January. We are big supporters of this movement to bring attention to the need for more multicultural children’s books in classrooms and libraries.
One of the best parts of MCBD each year is their online Twitter Party, where participants get a chance to discuss issues surrounding multicultural books and diversity in publishing with educators, authors and parents. If you missed it, you can search Twitter for #ReadYourWorld, and catch up on archived posts. And be sure to sign up for the MCBD newsletter so you can join us next year!
As part of MCBD, we shared an exciting new resource with authors, bloggers and reviewers, that helps educators embrace multiculturalism in their classrooms with lesson plans, games, and fun diversity activities. We’re excited to share feedback from a few of our reviewers here.Continue reading Multicultural Children’s Book Day – Recap & Reviews
