All are trade books, not language instruction books, reflect a variety of cultures with which immigrant students may identify, and focus on respect for cultural differences. The listing includes books for all school age groups. Entries are presented in four parts: picture books, word books, and stories; legends, fables, folk tales, and fairy tales; fiction; and nonfiction. Appendices provide cross-references by location, ethnic group, and topic. A list of 18 additional useful references is appended. (MSE)
