With the original publication of Multicultural Voices, Frances Ann Day celebrated the lives of thirty-nine multicultural authors and illustrators, helping educators bring students and authors together in a way that promoted stimulating reading, imaginative writing, and cultural sensitivity. Thousands of readers not only discovered a new body of literature, they also gained new sensitivity to writing styles, language subtleties, and worldviews. Now, the new edition has been significantly revised to keep it current and make it even more useful. Day has added a number of new authors, updated the biographical profiles, included reviews and activities for more than 120 new books, and expanded the resource list for educators, librarians, and parents. There are five appendixes containing assessment plans, additional activities, lists of birthdays, a calendar of multicultural events, and information on additional resources. Plus, a comprehensive subject index helps readers plan story sessions and units of study. Themes, curricular areas, genres, and topics facilitate the use of literature across the curriculum. This guide is highly versatile, enabling readers to adapt the material to fit their individual teaching and learning styles, curriculum requirements, and educational goals. Educators, librarians, and parents alike will find the book an inspiring resource.Summarize this book using the Good News/Bad News motif. ... How did the characters cope with each of these problems?
