Review: Teaching And Learning In A Diverse World: Multicultural Education For Young Children

User Review  - Fran - Goodreads

It was a required text in a class, but I chose to read it and have really enjoyed my journey. Prior to reading, I couldn't see the value in beating a dead horse so to speak-but the book opened my eyes to a lot of issues I had not considered. If you teach, its a must read! Read full review
