Each year, this online- and offline-celebration attracts thousands of supporters, educators, parents, caregivers, book reviewers, and quality authors and publishers, who join forces to shine the spotlight on diversity in literature for children and young adults. In addition to the annual event, MCBD offers free resources, teaching tools, book lists, downloads, and year-round initiatives to get multicultural and diverse books into the hands of young readers.

"As a proud participant and Multicultural Children’s Book Day Reviewer since I first discovered MCBD in 2014, this remains one of my favorite annual events, and has connected me with new readers and organizations where I can donate books," says Childress Ink founder Kim Childress.
Childress Ink and Ink-a-Dink will celebrate the occasion with additional book give-aways, curriculum, resources, surprise freebies and book swag. Subscribe at ChildressInk.com and Ink-a-Dink.com for advance information.
Founded in 2013 by Mia Wenjen, Multicultural Children’s Book Day (#ReadYourWorld) is a non-profit organization that works with authors and publishers to make diverse children’s books available for free.
