MCCBD 2016 What In The World! Wild, Weird, and Wonderful Adventures of a Wanderer MG

This was a interesting book of one mans travels to many different countries and his perspective on their culture.  It is a really cool and refreshing book written by one person as he grows older and keeps on traveling as he can afford too, and is not written by an anonymous publishing group doing generic rambling research.  Most of his stops are covered in a page or two keeping this book appealing to even the most reluctant of readers. I found most of the authors narrations and photos insightful, personal, awesomely colorful, and it made this book much more fun to read and learn about all these wonderful countries and cultures.

Our Mission:
The MCCBD team’s mission to spread the word and raise awareness about the importance of diversity in children’s literature. Our young readers need to see themselves within the pages of a book and experience other cultures, languages, traditions and religions within the pages of a book. We encourage readers, parents, teachers, caregivers and librarians to follow along the fun book reviews, author visits, event details, a multicultural children’s book linky and via our hashtag (#ReadYourWorld) on Twitter and other social media.

NOTE: The full name of this event is Multicultural Children’s Book Day and our official hashtag is #ReadYourWorld. The co-creators of this unique event are Mia Wenjen from Pragmatic Mom and Valarie Budayr from Jump Into a Book/Audrey Press. You can find a bio for Mia and Valarie here.
