Multicultural Storytime Magic
MacMillan, Kathy; Kirker, Christine
ALA Editions
Storytime audiences grow ever more diverse, and it's important that the materials used in programs reflect that richness of experience. Multiculturalism need not be an occasional initiative attached to particular holidays. In this book best-selling authors MacMillan and Kirker offer a new paradigm for multicultural programs, one in which diversity is woven into any and every storytime, no matter what the topic. Arranged thematically around dozens of popular storytime themes, the authors: (1) Present original and traditional resources from all over the world that will enrich storytimes for ages 2 through 5; (2) Offer concrete book recommendations, fingerplays, and other activities that can be integrated into existing storytimes; and (3) Include download links for flannelboard and stick puppet patterns, and illustrations of American Sign Language signs. With numerous activities and programming suggestions, this book will seamlessly integrate and enhance cultural awareness for children all year round.
