Helping Children Love Themselves and Others: A Professional Handbook for Family Day Care.
Children's Foundation, Washington, DC.
An anti-bias, multicultural approach to family day care is presented in this book. Part A provides a rationale for such an approach; Part B outlines ideas for children's anti-bias, multicultural projects; Part C describes children's books and adult resources, and lists sources of hard-to-find items such as multicultural dolls and puppets. Subsections of Part A concern family day care as as a site for the transmission of bias; characteristics of an anti-bias, multicultural approach; language and stereotypes; developmental tasks at different ages; parents as partners; the family day care environment; and strategies to use with children. Subsections of Part B describe anti-bias, multicultural activities; and offer guidelines for celebrating nontraditional holidays. Subsections of Part C offer a checklist for books, toys, and materials; an annotated bibliography of 301 items of children's literature that are indexed according to gender of the main character, the race/culture of the main culture, multiethnic content and other characteristics, such as special need content and strong anti-bias message; an annotated bibliography of 32 resources for adults; a list of companies with anti-bias and/or multicultural books and materials; and a list of resource organizations. Fifty-seven references are included. (RH)
