      Title: Promoting a global community through multicultural children's literature
      Excerpt: "Steiner has produced an invaluable resource for librarians, educators, and parents of children in kindergarten through grade eight. The 800 titles listed represent 'quality multicultural literature' providing the young reader the opportunity to learn about different cultures of the world. . . . In her delightful foreword, Alma Flor Ada speaks of the 'magical encounter' between children and multicultural literature. This resource is an extremely effective tool enabling this special and necessary encounter to occur. The ultimate goal of the encounter is to assure cultural understanding, appreciation of diversity, and, eventually, world peace."
