We recently came across something amazing that we wholeheartedly support called The Birthday Party Pledge! When you take The Birthday Pledge you are committing to these three things:
To give multicultural books to kids in your life as birthday presents for a year.
To encourage the kids in your life to read about and appreciate diversity in all its forms.
To help build a new generation of readers!
We love that the pledge not only encourages kids to read (which is great), but encourages adults to intentionally help kids become more aware of diversity through books (even better!). You can read more about The Birthday Pledge (and find lots of book recommendation lists) by following this link. We hope you'll take the challenge and actively help to promote diversity and reading!
