Hansen-Krening, Nancy, Ed.; Aoki, Elaine M., Ed.; Mizokawa, Donald T., Ed.
The fourth edition of this annotated bibliography collection offers students, teachers, and librarians a helpful guide to the best multicultural literature (published from 1999 to 2001) for elementary and middle school readers. The book continues a tradition of promoting unity through diversity by highlighting fiction and nonfiction published by and about people of color. Its annotations have been divided according to kind, such as bilingual and multilingual literature and informational and educational books, or according to issues that young readers have in common, such as families, friends, and community; war and resilience; concerns about visibility; and social responsibility. Annotations provide bibliographic information as well as content summaries, and readers can search for books by author, illustrator, subject, and title. (NKA)
