Spanish Playground plays a unique role in reaching teachers and parents of Spanish speakers and learners. Spanish language, bilingual and culturally relevant books are essential learning tools for these children. Multicultural Children’s Book Day is an opportunity to discover new titles for your Spanish speakers and learners, in addition to many other multicultural books.
Multicultural Children’s Book Day was created by Mia Wenjen from Pragmatic Mom and Valarie Budayr from Jump Into a Book. Spanish Playground is thrilled to be a co-host for Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2016.
