This post has a round-up of all the free book companions I have created for Multicultural Children’s Book Days (MCBD). I am participating again in 2018. Each year on January 27th this event happens with hundreds of bloggers, publishers, authors, and teachers participating to share the MCBD books. Each book is linked to the corresponding blog post where the free instant download (no password required) is found.

Free Multicultural Books for Teachers:

Through each multicultural book a child reads, it creates a new level of understanding and empathy. When we can see through the eyes of another, when we can share a loved book with a friend regardless of religion, culture, race etc, we create a sense of belonging not only in our classrooms and homes but more importantly in our communities. The world outside our window becomes ours to shape and create.” Valarie Budayr (MCBD Co-Founder)

“This year, as with every year, we are striving more persistently than ever to place as many books into children’s hands as possible. Our unwavering mission is to share our love of reading from a multicultural perspective while also sharing the storytelling talents of authors and publishers alike.” Mia Wenjen (MCBD Co-founder)
