Not intended to be all inclusive or even representative, this manual explores a few areas of our world with books, activities and ideas. It is a very simple introduction to the idea that all over the world people are different and similar, even in our own neighborhood, and should be supplemented with other ideas to create a full multicultural spectrum. Ideas to use when planning program activities for toddlers, preschoolers and school age children are presented. Each chapter includes storytime ideas, program ideas, and a variety of other activities. Storytimes are for all ages, and each storytime idea includes books and activities around a similar theme. Programs are an opportunity to expand the library's learning experience beyond books, including arts and crafts, ideas for community involvement, cooking, and bulletin boards. They each contain a designated age level: toddler, preschool, school age, or all ages. Contents also include a 37-page annotated bibliography, a list of 36 resources for adults, a 106-item audio visual bibliography, addresses to order posters, bookmarks, etc., and clip art to copy.
