Our Family, Our Friends, Our World: An Annotated Guide to Significant Multicultural Books for Children and Teenagers.
This bibliography lists 1,038 multicultural books for children and teenagers, published between 1970 and 1991, that can assist librarians, teachers, and parents in educating children and young adults about their changing world. The books are selected to enhance opportunities for children to live and learn together by providing them with fair and accurate materials that describe one another's heritage and experiences. In-depth annotations are provided for each of the books listed in which the authors alert adults to instances when they will need to sensitize young readers to the biases and inaccuracies in the fiction and non-fiction they will be reading. Each chapter features an introductory section, a map of the region being highlighted, and an annotated list of books for preschool to grade 12 students. Three appendixes include Professional Sources, a Series List, and a Publishers Directory. The book is indexed by author, title/series, and subject. (GLR)
