Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2017

Did you know that last year during our January, 27 2016 event, our event generated over 93 million social media impressions in just three days?! We expect to increase this for our upcoming event!

If you are an author thinking of joining us, we have currently signed up more than 250 children’s book reviewers who will be sharing their reviews on their social media. Author sponsors can expect visibility, traffic, social media support and an “in” with a vibrant readership and support system for a very affordable rate of $100.

All book reviews will be compiled the day of the event in a huge Linky Party that doubles as a reading and book resource list for parents, teachers, caregivers and libraries. This linky will be housed all year along on the MCBD site, on Jump Into a Book and PragmaticMom along will all 16 CoHosts’ sites.

Please join us in our global online event! Act soon though: the deadline for ALL Sponsorship levels January, 1, 2017.

To keep in touch, our official hashtag  is #ReadYourWorld. Please like us on Facebook and follow on Twitter. Thank you so much for your support!

  1. Thanks for the reminder, Mia!! I’m considering this for my book that comes out in July, but for some reason, I am unable to access any information on the multiculturalchildrensbookday site. I don’t know if there’s a problem with the site, or something on my computer. I’ll ask my way more computer literate hubby when he gets home tonight 🙂

  2. (And the HERE link is also not working for me for some reason). But again, not sure if it’s an issue with me…

  3. Great to have Scholastic onboard. Have you contacted Second Story Press in Canada. I review so many Native American and other multicultural books from them. I have a PR contact if you are interested and an address. Just let me know.
