I am pleased to announce that It Jes’ Happened: When Bill Traylor Started to Draw has been selected by Reading Is Fundamental’s 2013-2014 Multicultural Book Collection. This list is comprised of 40 children’s books for grades K-5. Each book in the collection was carefully reviewed and selected by RIF’s Literacy Services team with guidelines provided by RIF’s Literature Advisory Board and Multicultural Advisory Committee, national panels of educators and experts in books for children.

Each book will also have an accompanying set of activities developed in accordance with the new Common Core standards. Educators, parents and community volunteers alike are sure to enjoy sharing this collection and activities with children.

Thanks to the generous support of Macy’s, more than 600 book collections will be donated to RIF programs serving children in low-income communities throughout the U.S.
