Henderson (education, U. of Cincinnati) and May (Purdue U.) present a collection of essays providing a new perspective on teaching with and about culturally diverse children's literature. Twenty-seven papers are organized into three thematic sections, which are further divided into sections addressing theory and practice relating to the theme. Coverage includes recognizing diversity in children's and adolescent literature, learning to interpret culturally diverse literature, and agency in the critique of children's and adolescent literature. Discussions of Native American, Asian American, African American, and religious texts are included throughout the text. For practicing teachers, teacher-trainees, and literary scholars.
