Multicultural Resources for Children: A Bibliography of Materials for Preschool Through Elementary School in the Areas of Black, Spanish-Speaking, Asian American, Native American, and Pacific Island Cultures.
Nichols, Margaret S.; O'Neill, Peggy
This bibliography covers the children's sections (preschool through elementary school) of a comprehensive demonstration collection of multicultural materials at California State University, Hayward, in the areas of Black, Spanish-speaking, Asian-American, American Indian and Pacific Island cultures. The bibliography lists approximately 4,000 items in the five cultural areas and a multicultural section. Divisions within each of the sections cover: folk tales and legends; picture books and early reading; poetry, plays, music, arts and festivals; crafts, games and miscellaneous; social studies materials; readings for older children; pictures, posters, maps and study prints; and materials from foreign publishers. Approximate grade levels are given, as well as hardback and paperback prices and publishers' and distributors' addresses. Suggestions are made for evaluation of materials from the standpoint of objectivity and cultural validity, with an appended list of source materials related to such evaluation. A list of distributors of Spanish-language and English-Spanish children's materials and a publishers' directory are also appended. (BF)
