Paula Kezwer has created an essential reference for teachers and librarians who are searching for books that reflect the cultural diversity of the students in todays classrooms.
Main Description
Teachers have become increasingly responsive to the cultural diversity reflected in their classrooms, recognising the benefits of acknowledging, in the curriculum, the varied groups that make up our society. When a cross-section of multicultural perspectives permeates the curriculum it validates all students' lives, helping learners recognise the universal values common to all cultures as well as appreciate the rich and positive differences between cultures. In compiling Worlds of Wonder: Resources for Multicultural Children's Literature, Paula Kezwer recognises that teachers are often at a loss about where to find appropriate resources to present a multicultural classroom perspective. In response to this need for easily accessible reference books she wrote Worlds of Wonder. In reviewing the more than 370 multicultural titles, from picture books to young adult novels and from traditional folktales to the stories of contemporary immigrants that make up Worlds of Wonder, Paula Kezwer has created an essential reference for teachers and librarians who are searching for books that reflect the cultural diversity of students in today's classrooms.
