Multicultural Literature for Children and Young Adults: Reflections on Critical Issues


While there is much discussion about multicultural children's literature, there are conflicting views on what it is and how it should be taught. This book examines many of the issues presently surrounding the place of multicultural children's literature in the curriculum. The first part of the book addresses the conceptualization of multicultural literature for children; the second, the creation and critique of multicultural writings; and the third, the use of this literature in education. Included are discussions of such topics as who can write multicultural literature, how multicultural literature should be selected for use with children, and what function it should serve in a student's overall education.
