Focusing on the common bonds between children, this delightful new book shows how multicultural values and ideas can be infused into early childhood programs through the use of appropriate picturebooks. In addition to providing the criteria for choosing such books, Building Bridges with Multicultural Picture Books explains how to lead children into book extension activities and, eventually, how to create multicultural programs using picturebooks. Coverage demonstrates how to bring book characters to life for children through "play" with puppets, dolls, character cut-outs, chopsticks, blocks, drums, tape recorders, magnifying glasses, role-plays, and story re-enactments. Curriculum webs and Accomplishment Cards are introduced as effective tools for evaluating each child's gains and integrating multicultural topics into programs for children. An extensive index -- with topics ranging from adoption and animals to weather and writing -- helps readers choose among the 300 books discussed within the book. Useful for any educator or parent who wishes to learn a means for using picture books as an educational tool and how to bring the characters in those books "to life."
