What is a Multicultural Book?
With the goal of bringing multicultural books to children that celebrate diversity, it is important that children are able to read books that they can relate to. Thus, a multicultural children’s book is characterized by the following:
· Books that include characters of color, as well as characters that represent a minority viewpoint.
· Books that share ideas, stories, and information about cultures, race, religion, language, and traditions.
· Books that embrace our world while providing children with new ways to connect with others within their environment.
