Multicultural Literature Connections for Elementary Grades

Twenty-first century students will increasingly see themselves as citizens of the world. Having the opportunity to understand and empathize with their global neighbors is a critical part of their education. When looking for a jumping off point for writing, multicultural picture books can provide a big bang for your buck! Children learn as much from the illustrations as they do from the tone of the text and the story line itself. These books are packed with cultural clues, and are great for compare/contrast lessons, connections to social studies, geography, and map skills.

Use these books to make reading-writing connections with a cultural appeal. To make this easy we’ve created our list in the form of a quick and handy reference chart that highlights relevant skills for use when studying author’s craft.
