"Children's Literature in a Multiliterate World is a timely and valuable resource for librarians, teachers, scholars, and anyone with a serious interest in international children's books. Its 12 chapters testify to the power of books to help children better understand themselves and others in our ever-shrinking world. Authors also explore the roles of home languages and culturally appropriate literature in helping children become fully literate, and vividly illustrate how experiences with global books promote intercultural understanding, and lead to the development of empathy."--Terrell A. Young, President, United States Board on Books for Young People, and Professor of Children's Literature, Brigham Young University
