Multicultural Children's Book Day

I am so excited to be celebrating Multicultural Children's Book Day with you!  The purpose of Multicultural Children's Book Day is to raise awareness of kids' books that celebrate diversity. This movement was founded last year and I jumped at the chance to be a part of it!  

Last year, I was honored to talk about The Magic Poof, a fun book about a little girl's hair that literally comes to life! This year, I'm delighted to introduce you to Marti Dumas, author of Jala and the Wolves and the Jaden Toussaint, the Greatest series.
