Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
A timely and informative guide for educators who are trying to promote an understanding of world cultures and our interconnectedness. The book is divided into five sections: "Ties That Bind: Celebrating Life around the World"; "Refugees and Homeless: Nomads of the World"; "Navigating the Road to Literacy"; "Books That Bring People Together"; and "Multicultural Books in a Series." Chapters are then subdivided into narrower topics and include annotated lists of books in many different genres. Each chapter concludes with a section of "Book Extensions," a list of ideas to build on the issues raised by some of the books mentioned. Each suggestion notes its applicability to subject areas such as social studies, sociology, and history. The more than 800 recommended titles for kindergarten through eighth grade are for the most part current and varied. The final section covers "Resources for Promoting Children's and Young Adult Literature" and provides a list of professional reading and resources for infusing literature into content areas. A valuable resource for a relevant topic.-Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt. St. Alban, Washington, DC Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
