FORT LAUDERDALE— South Florida children can celebrate their love for reading on Saturday, when the organization Readingpaysmore hosts a Children’s Multi-cultural Book Fair at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center.

The book fair, co-sponsored by the Friends of the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC), will be at 2650 Sistrunk Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311.

This event will feature an array of activities just for young people, with titles such as Children’s Art Exhibit,   Children’s Performance, Children Who Change the World, and Children’s Tasty Treats from Around the World.

The Children’s Multi-cultural Book Fair celebrates Foster Children’s month in May and International Children’s Day on June 1. Books will feature stories and information from all over the world. Children will also get a chance to taste children’s favorite treats and enjoy art and performances from children all over the world.

Organizers say the book fair will provide a day filled with new experiences that will open the hearts and minds of children and their parents. They predict adults will leave thinking “Ahhh, the power of love and great expectations for our children.”

Children are natural explorers and curious about the world around them. Learning about each other’s culture early in their lives will help them to understand each other as children and adults.

Readingpaysmore is a non-profit organization that markets the financial and other rewards of reading to children and adults. Members’ vision is that children and adults will use reading as a daily activity to expand their minds, hearts and lives, and their mission is to build a culture of reading so that every child is reading and comprehending above grade level.  Please visit for more information.

There will be an option to donate $5 to purchase books for children in foster care or orphanages. For more information about the book fair, call 954-535-0827.
