Summary

This second edition of the classic text retains its original focus on children's understanding of race, socioeconomic class, culture, and gender, while also expanding the definition and scope of multicultural education. The author introduces new themes by showing us how environmental exploitation and consumerism are related to social inequities and by demonstrating how a respect for the natural world can and must be woven into early childhood education. This book provides practical suggestions of how to incorporate a multicultural perspective in all of our day-to-day interactions with children -- from making up classroom rules to planning field trips. There is also a valuable appendix of "Suggested Books for Children."
