Multicultural Children's Book Day: Read Around the World






In honor of Multicultural Children's Book Day on January 27th of this year, I have reached way, way back in my files and pulled out these photos of a book fair from 2009 with the theme "Read Around the World." I hope to always share stories from around the world with my students.


Take a look at my other Multicultural Children's Book Day posts this week:

For more wordless photos, go to Wordless Wednesday.

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy ReadsTo participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky at West Metro Mommy Reads. 

The Multicultural Children's Book Day team’s mission is to spread the word and raise awareness about the importance of diversity in children’s literature. Our young readers need to see themselves within the pages of a book and experience other cultures, languages, traditions and religions within the pages of a book. We encourage readers, parents, teachers, caregivers and librarians to follow along the fun book reviews, author visits, event details, a multicultural children’s book linky and via our hashtag (#ReadYourWorld) on Twitter and other social media.
