Here is a list of some of the older multicultural books in the Curriculum Library.  Older books need to be considered with care, since some of them may express values no longer appropriate to teach to children today.  This list may be useful to students in Edu 119, Human Relations.  Also note the list “20 Multicultural Books Every Child Should Know.”

Titles from: “A Sampler of Books to Invite Careful Listening”
