Young People’s Poet Laureate Margarita Engle and Amy Ludwig VanDerwater are championing the United Nations International Day of Peace which is today, September 21.
They are hoping that our educator and author and illustrator friends will flood the internet with images, poems, books, and ideas of peace on this day (9/21) along with the UN hashtag #peaceday.
Please Help Us Celebrate #peaceday Today!

BEST #OWNVOICES CHILDREN’S BOOKS: My Favorite Diversity Books for Kids Ages 1-12 is a book that I created to highlight books written by authors who share the same marginalized identity as the characters in their books.
