Across cultures (book)

East, K. & Thomas, R.L. (2007). Across cultures: A guide to multicultural literature for children. Westport, CT: Libraries Unlimited.

Easy to use, well organized guide to multicultural resources for preschool through 6th grade. Chapters are arranged thematically, there are two chapters on parent-child discussion groups and literature circles. The content chapters are followed by almost every kind of index you could want: author, title, illustrator, subject, grade level, and award winners. The authors also include information needed for purchasing these titles.
