About Multiculturalism Rocks!
This blog celebrates cultural diversity in children's literature and the people who make it happen. I find heritage months wonderful, however I also believe that one needs not to wait for a particular season to celebrate cultural diversity. Like any other mainstream successes, multicultural books are a wonderful source of information, provide a great escapism and, dare I say, promote world peace. What is there not to like? *smile*
With that in mind, be ready to read about Native Indian, Asian, Hispanic, African-American literature and many others, anytime of the month.
While I will do my best to post regularly, please keep in mind that the blog is still a work-in-progress, as I am balancing my academic obligations and other life altering matters.
Features, such as a blog roll of authors, publishers and more, will be added and updated on a regular basis.
Thank you for your patience.
