This paper provides an annotated bibliography of sets of multicultural, family-related literature and suggests ways that teachers may build a sense of personal and global community in their classrooms as cultural differences are read about, discussed, and celebrated. The paper first gives a rationale for studying nontraditional, multicultural families. The paper then presents a 57-item annotated bibliography of books published between 1967 and 1993, divided into sections on grandparents; elderly friends and extended family; dealing with death; homelessness; a new baby; divorce/absent parent; growing and changing; interracial families; and siblings. The paper also offers ideas for classroom discussions and activities that extend literature study. (RS)
