Exciting news! I'm proud to be one of many voices for Multicultural Children's Book Day! My district is multicultural with a large Latino and Russian population, yet there's not always books multicultural books for them to learn about their heritage.
You can spread the word too! The official hashtag is #ReadYourWorld.
Also, they're also partnering with First Book to offer a Virtual Book Drive that will help donate multicultural children’s books through their channels during the week of the event.
So what did I get to do? I got to review a wonderful book called "All About China" by Allison Branscombe. There are stories, songs, crafts, and a ton more in this amazing book, that fits right in with our third grade world cultures and traditions unit we are currently doing. Our school library has a handful of culture books to share between all our classes, so this will be definitely used! I created a small companion pack to go with this book.
The freebie that I created for this:
