Birthday Party Pledge

Posted on 13 January 2012 Friday


My colleagues and I have launched a childhood literacy initiative called the Birthday Party Pledge; we’re asking adults to commit to buying multicultural books as gifts for the children in their lives. “It takes a village” to ensure that each child has a home library, yet finding books that feature black children can be challenging. Our site provides lists (picture books, historical fiction, graphic novels, books boys love, speculative fiction, poetry, global fiction, etc.) so that adults can go into a bookstore or library armed with titles that truly reflect the diversity of our world.
Please check out our website (and blog) and share this resource with others.
You can also “like” our page on Facebook.
And please, add the button to your website to show your commitment!
