Paper Tigers is a website that embraces multicultural books and is a great resource for anyone interested in children’s and YA books from around the world, primarily focusing on the Pacific Rim and South Asia.
They are announcing a new project today called “Spirit of PaperTigers”, that aims to put a select number of multicultural books in the hands of children in areas of need in different parts of the world. It’s a worthy cause, so be sure to check it out and get involved!
This news was passed on to me by my dear critique friend, Nathalie Mvondo. She is the host of her own blog celebrating multiculturalism in children’s literature, called Multiculturalism Rocks!. Her posts range from informative interviews with author’s and publishers to sewing her own seeds of encouragement and importance of different and distinct voices around the world!
