Are you ready for Multicultural Children’s Book Day?

This Friday is Multicultural Children’s Book Day, where we celebrate diverse stories by diverse authors. Visit the MCBD site to find links to all of the MCBD bloggers and the books they’re celebrating. Sneak peek: I’ll be talking about Mia Wenjen’s picture book, Sumo Joe, illustrated by Nat Iwata.

Newbery Winner Jerry Craft (New Kid) created this year’s poster. Isn’t it gorgeous?


I'm a mom, a children's librarian, bibliophile, and obsessive knitter. I'm a pop culture junkie and a proud nerd, and favorite reads usually fall into Sci-Fi/Fantasy. I review comics and graphic novels at WhatchaReading ( I'm also the co-founder of On Wednesdays We Wear Capes (, where I discuss pop culture and geek fandom from a female point of view.
