This past January, the Multicultural Children’s Book Day team wrapped up their 9th annual online event, held each year to shine a spotlight on diverse children’s literature. While the event itself is an hour-long, fun-filled Twitter Party, the celebration continued long beyond those 60 minutes. What a fun night! Diverse books were given away to participants and hosts shared (what we lovingly call) a “Big Giant Linky” where you can find reviews of and recommendations for hundreds of diverse books for children. Social media was filled with pictures and posts all celebrating the #readyourworld movement.
Now that this year’s event is over, our hearts are full of gratitude. We want to thank our 823 reviewers, 166 donators, 854 matches, 1 super platinum medallion sponsor, 1 platinum medallion sponsor, 5 gold medallion sponsors (including KidLit TV), 3 silver medallion sponsors, 21 bronze medallion sponsors, 37 authors, and 71 sponsors whose support made Multicultural Children’s Book Day possible. Thank you!!In case you missed it, here are a few tweets from the celebration:

A4. We read a ton more than before, we are home more often, share more stories, create more of our own. My daughter loves doing book photo shoots! #ReadYourWorld https://t.co/0w6uSJCdSW pic.twitter.com/0saVcNexGf
