Why should you care about multicultural children’s books?  Because you and any children whose lives you touch live in the real world which is multicultural.  It is very important that children see themselves represented on the pages of a children’s book in positive lights for many reasons.

Think about our world today and the images children see in the media about cultures different from their own and reflect  why it might be equally important for children to explore, different cultures from the safe pages of children’s literature!
