School Library Journal
With No Child Left Behind and AYP breathing down teachers' and librarians' necks, Hinton and Dickinson offer a way to introduce multicultural literature into the classroom. Designed to be used as a companion to standard textbooks (which are often above the reading and interest levels of many students), this book is grouped by topics such as "Gender and Sexuality," "Socio-Economics," "Race and Ethnicity," and "Language/Country of Origin." Within each chapter, five or six books are highlighted, with suggestions for classroom use and read-alikes. The authors have included examples from fiction, nonfiction, poetry, screenplays, and picture books that can be integrated into curricula as writing prompts, discussion starters, art projects, and research ideas that include opportunities for collaboration. A solid reference source.
