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!
