Coming Soon: Multicultural Children's Book Day!

Being part of a multicultural family full of book lovers, I was very interested by the following data shared by Mia of Pragmatic Mom and Valarie of Jump into a Book.

Despite census data that shows 37% of the US population consists of people of color, only 10% of children’s books published have diversity content.

As self-proclaimed children's reading and play advocates, Mia and Valarie are on a mission to change that. Through "Multicultural Children’s Book Day: Celebrating Diversity in Children's Literature," Mia and Valarie are working to raise awareness for kids books that celebrate diversity, and to get more of these books into classrooms and libraries.

Watch for books, links, info, and fun coming your way, on January 27th, right here on Open Wide the World!

Thanks to the fabulous sponsors:
