REVIEWERS NEEDED FOR MULTICULTURAL CHILDREN'S BOOK DAY

 

This is for those who love kids books (from board books to YA books) and love to see characters from all over as well as places that are diverse as well. The co-founders, Mia Wenjen and Valarie Budayr, are looking for reviewers. And they would love the reviewers list to be worldwide if possible. Link is below along with link to cohosts for this year's book day on 25 January 2019.

 

 

Both Mia and Valarie have been promoting Multicultural Children's Book Day

1. to raise awareness of those books that already celebrate diversity in children's literature

2. to promote getting more diversity (characters from minority groups, special needs, far away places) in books to get more kids reading earlier and longer, and

3. to promote getting these books into the hands of Teachers and Librarians to share with their kids,

4. to promote resources for classrooms and libraries to help with lesson plans around diversity.

Reading progress update: I've read 72 out of 224 pages.
The Color of Magic - Terry Pratchett

I just think the world ought to be more sort of organised.”
“That’s just fantasy,” said Twoflower.
“I know. That’s the trouble.” Rincewind sighed again. It was all very well going on about pure logic and how the universe was ruled by logic and the harmony of numbers, but the plain fact of the matter was that the disc was manifestly traversing space on the back of a giant turtle and the gods had a habit of going round to atheists’ houses and smashing their windows.

 

The more the worlds change, huh *grin*

A mostly nostalgic book haul. Excuse my awkwardness and sound quality. It has been a while. Also, it is hot, so I wasn't going to turn off my fans!! If you have an OCD about stickers on books, you've been warned. (I do, but some of the stickers are a pain to remove!)

The Discworld offers sights far more impressive than those found in universes built by Creators with less imagination but more mechanical aptitude.

 

These world descriptions kill me.

 

The disc gods themselves, despite the splendour of the world below them, are seldom satisfied. It is embarrassing to know that one is a god of a world that only exists because every improbability curve must have its far end; especially when one can peer into other dimensions at worlds whose Creators had more mechanical aptitude than imagination No wonder, then, that the disc gods spend more time in bickering than in omnicognizance.

 

I can't stop laughing. Oh, and luggage wins the BAMF crown so far.
