The Multicultural Children's Book Project


Multicultural Children Book Day is an event initiated by children’s reading and play advocates Valarie Budayr and Mia Wenjen of https://multiculturalchildrensbookday.com/.

The English Learner Portal Team would like to show our support for this initiative by sharing our favorite multicultural books. Inside this course you will find the English Learner Portal Team's book recommendations along with additional resources for making the most of these titles in your classroom!

Whether read in small groups, added to the classroom library, or a whole group read aloud, let's continue to ensure that ALL students see themselves in the love of books we share each day in our classrooms!
