Beyond Tolerance is a hopeful, optimistic book focused on creating positive and sustained social change through engagement with beautiful, sometimes complex, and consistently interesting multiethnic children’s literature. It presents a fresh perspective on race and ethnicity. Additionally, it features an innovative approach to literacy teaching and learning through the use of multiethnic children’s literature in our preschools and throughout the elementary school grades.
