You can follow the action on Twitter by using #ReadYourWorld. I just set up a Tweetdeck column using that hashtag so I can see what's happening this week.
As it applies to Multicultural Children's Book Day, multicultural children’s books are defined as:
- Books that contain characters of color as well as main characters that represent a minority point of view.
- Books written by an author of diversity or color from their perspective. Search #ownvoices to discover diverse books written by diverse authors.
- Books that share ideas, stories, and information about cultures, race, religion, language, and traditions. These books can be non-fiction, but still written in a way that kids will find entertaining and informative.
- Books that embrace special needs or even “hidden disabilities” like ADHD, ADD, and anxiety.
