Mutlicultural Children's Book Day shares diversity resources for parents and teachers.

Welcome to our 4th Multicultural Children’s Book Day! Spanish Playground is honored to once again be a co-host for this important event.  Multicultural Children’s Book Day raises awareness of the ongoing need to include kids’ books that celebrate diversity in home and school bookshelves. We also work diligently to get more of these books into the hands of readers, parents and educators.
