A Never Ending Never Done Bibliography of Multicultural Literature for Younger and Older Children. First Edition.
Walters, Toni S., Comp.; Cramer, Amy, Comp.
People of all ages are addressed in this bibliography of multicultural literature. It focuses on four major ethnic groups: African Americans, Asian Americans, Latino Americans, and Native Americans. Within each category a distinction is made between those works with an authentic voice and those with a realistic voice. An authentic voice is an author or illustrator who is from the particular ethnic group and brings expertise and life experience to his/her writings or illustrations. A realistic voice is that of an author or illustrator whose work is from outside that experience, but with valuable observations. An asterisk notes the distinction. No distinction is drawn between juvenile literature and adult literature. The decision is left to the reader to make the choices, because some adult literature may contain selections appropriate to children. Two appendices provide: a selected annotated bibliography (14 entries) on multiethnic/multicultural literature references and analyses and sources of multiethnic/multicultural books. (SPM)
