What is Multicultural Book Day?

¡Hola! ¡Familias!

Let’s just jump right in…….

Multicultural Book Day is a day of celebration for diversity in children’s books.  The founder Valarie Budayr from Jump Into a Book, and Mia Wenjen from Pragmatic Mom created Multicultural Book Day.

The purpose of this day is an effort to push literature that supports diverse characters, storylines, and proper representations for children. This is the 5th. year, and the excitement is in the air for such a special day!

THE VISION

The founders vision was to get as many families, educators, teachers, librarians together around the world.  This is a collaborative effort to  offer supportive platforms for Authors, Writers and Illustrators.

Multicultural Book Day is January 27, 2018.

6. BONUS CREATE AFFIRMATIONS

What a positive jump start for the New Year! Empowering our children with positive affirmations today, and throughout their lives. This activity could be as simple as writing down what your child will fill in the blanks of the”I am’s____”

A 6 year old I know wrote beautiful, unique, and strong for herself…. she wrote down 10 of them. She loved the activity, and would recite them throughout the day on her own. She also threw in “I am a pizza” and we laughed and went with it….LOL…..the most important thing was her winning attitude.

What activities will your children enjoy for the New Year? Have you tried any of these activities above?

I hope your family have a prosperous New Year!!!
