Abstract:

Noting that the United States is fast becoming the most culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse nation in the world, this book is designed to help parents, teachers, and other child caregivers teach children and teens respect and appreciation for all cultural, ethnic, and racial groups. Using age-appropriate examples, the book shows how to combat bias and negative attitudes from friends, relatives, and the media. It also provides problem solving techniques for specific situations; a resource guide to multicultural books, audiotapes, videos, dolls, and games; 11 stories from different cultures to share with children; and creative activities that celebrate a variety of cultures. Part 1 discusses the role of parents and family in the development of children's attitudes and the importance of early cultural education. Part 2 looks at influences outside the home and family, such as school and the media. Part 3 explains how to counteract negative influences on children's attitudes and to support positive ones. Part 4 contains a variety of folktales that offer views of other peoples and cultures. The titles are: (1) "The Earth on Turtle's Back" (Onondaga Indians, Northeast United States); (2) "Banh Giay and Banh Chung" (Vietnam); (3) "The Flight of the Animals" (India); (4) "Cinder Jack" (Hungary); (5) "How the Porcupine Outwitted the Fox" (Honduras); (6) "Simon and the Big Joke" (Trinidad); (7) "The Man Whose Luck Was Sleeping" (Persia); (8) "The Origin of Lamps" and "The Education of Goat" (Haiti); (9) "Treasure Mountain" (Yao People, Southern China); (10) "The Baby Leopard" (West Africa); and (11) "Lon Po Po" (China).
