Abstract:

The Canadian Multicultural Mosaic has long been recognized as an - if not the - outstanding characteristic of the Canadian nation at home and abroad. It has, further, come to be regarded as a model worldwide of a well-functioning culturally diverse society. This first book-length study of Canadian multicultural children's literature sets out to explore how literature for the young has contributed to the creation of the country's multicultural discourse as well as to the construction of its national identity. In this context, children's literature possesses particular significance, as juvenile.
