Multicultural Children's Book Day 1/27/15

Just a short post ... Good Reads with Ronna is helping celebrate this event, read about it at her blog. You can help celebrate this event by reading (or having your child read) a multicultural book. Some new ones at our library include:

Wild Berries by Julie FlettBilingual Cree and English. 
Simply Read Books (PreS-3). 

Clarence and his grandmother spend the day picking berries and meet ant, spider, and fox in the beautiful ancestral woodlands of this Metis and Cree author and illustrator.

Bobby vs. the Girls (Accidently) by Lisa Yee 
Scholastic (Grades 3-6).

Robert Carver Ellis-Chan, a perfectly normal fourth-grader, gets into perfectly crazy situations! Like when he was running for class president and discovered his big sister's panties clinging to the back of his sweater. An hilarious early chapter book reader.

Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
Penguin (Grades 5-8).  

In free verse poems, Woodson reflects on what it was like growing up as an African American during the rise of the Civil Rights Movement and how she found her voice with writing

The Boy in the Black Suit by Jason Reynolds 
Simon and Schuster (YA). 

Soon after his mother's death, Matt takes a job at a funeral home in his tough Brooklyn neighborhood and, while assisting with funerals, begins to accept her death and his responsibilities as a man.
