Today is Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2021! The book I am spot lighting is,The Pirate Princess, written by Alva Sachs @alva.sachs and illustrated by Patricia Krebs. This enjoyable story is about a young girl, named Madison, who was sad about it raining outside. She wanted to play with her friends outside and the plans were ruined because of the rain. She was not happy about that. But her mom gave her the idea of playing indoors. She excitedly invited her friends over. They used their imaginations and got creative! Madison became the Pirate Princess 👸🏽! She and her friends soared the sea of adventure—together.
Multicultural Children’s Book Day is in its 8th year! This non-profit children’s literacy initiative was founded by Valarie Budayr and Mia Wenjen; two diverse book-loving moms who saw a need to shine the spotlight on all of the multicultural books and authors on the market while also working to get those book into the hands of young readers and educators.
Eight years in, MCBD’s mission is to raise awareness of the ongoing need to include kids’ books that celebrate diversity in homes and school bookshelves continues. Read about our Mission & Vision at https://multiculturalchildrensbookday.com/about/mission/
