Good Neighbors around the World: Building World Knowledge with Translated Literature for Children.
Lo, Deborah Eville
Although people may be making progress toward global understanding and multicultural acceptance, there are still "miles to go." Only when an individual can view the members of other cultures as people of equal value will s/he be able to truly understand the perspectives of another. Unfortunately, classroom teachers are rarely equipped to teach a global curriculum. The best and most authentic materials by which to understand another culture are the books and stories written by authors of that culture for the children of that culture. This document presents an annotated bibliography of contemporary international children's literature that has been translated into English. The list contains 4 books from African literature, 8 from Asian literature, 1 from French Canadian literature, 7 from Central and South American literature, 4 from Eastern European literature, and 11 from European literature.
