Babies without Borders: Representations of Transracial Chinese Adoption in Picture Books
Sun, Lina
Multicultural Education, v23 n2 p55-59 Win 2016
Interracial and multi-ethnic families formed through intermarriage and transracial adoption are on the rise in the context of globalization, transforming familiar assumptions about what a family should be. The trend of diversity in family composition is increasing and will continue to evolve. This article attempts to compile a set of useful guidelines on how to select adoption-related children's literature with accurate and positive representations, present bibliographies of picture books featuring transracial Chinese adoption, and put forward some pedagogical suggestions for teachers to incorporate these reading materials into classroom instruction.
