Multi-Ethnic Reading and Audio-Visual Materials for Young Children: Annotated Bibliography.
Day Care and Child Development Council of America, Inc., Washington, DC.
This publication lists multi-ethnic reading, audio, and audio-visual materials for young children in day care center programs and homes. The listing, it is held, is by no means a complete one. The need for listing these materials arises from the fact that, historically, children's literature on minority races has been written from a prejudiced point of view, and in a derogatory manner, by white authors for a white audience. Another major reason for putting this list together is to encourage each minority to learn about the other through authentic and reputable authors. This way, the stereotyping and negative attitudes that have resulted from bad children's literature may be offset. In most listings there is sufficient information to order the books listed. Where possible, the cost, audience or grade level, and binding--paperback or hard cover--of the books is specified. Some of the films indicate that a preview is available prior to purchase. The listings are organized in four sections: Spanish, Indian, Black, and Reference Sources. (Author/JM)
