Multicultural Literature: Broadening Young Children's Experiences.
Salas, Rachel G.; Lucido, Frank; Canales, JoAnn
This chapter is part of a book that recounts the year's work at the Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) at Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi. Rather than an "elitist" laboratory school for the children of university faculty, the dual-language ECDC is a collaboration between the Corpus Christi Independent School District and the university, with an enrollment representative of Corpus Christi's population. The chapter briefly discusses multicultural children's literature and provides criteria for selecting high-quality multicultural children's literature. The chapter also discusses ECDC's commitment to selecting and using high-quality multicultural literature, particularly Latino and Spanish-language literature, in the classroom environment. (Contains 25 references and lists 5 children's books.) (EV)
