Recommended Multicultural and Anti-Bias Books for Children

Choosing Multicultural Books for Young Children (newsletter to parents)
Save the Muslim Girl! In this article from "Rethinking Schools" the authors identify how many books reproduce–and offer opportunities to challenge—longstanding ideas commonly associated with Islam: backwardness, oppression, and cultural decay. The authors believe that these novels can best be used to teach about the common Western stereotypes that are universalized in these books rather than to teach about Afghanistan, Pakistan, or Islamic cultures.
Assessing Children’s Literature discusses how to assess children’s books for stereotypes.
