The push for diversity is one of my favorite things happening in children's books these days, and grassroots organizations like We Need Diverse Books are jumping to support the cause. Add to that list of organizations Multicultural Children's Book Day, which had its first day in celebration of diverse children's books in 2014.
This year, Multicultural Children's Book Day will be celebrated on Tuesday, January 27. Have a celebration yourself by visiting their blog for Author and Illustrator Spotlights, book suggestions, and profiles of their sponsors.
While you're at it, stop by Oakland Public Library's Pinterest board for book suggestions! We have recommendations on books about multiracial children, books about differently-abled children, and many more.
