RIF’s 2015 Multicultural Booklist (Grades K to 5)

I am so honored that RIF (Reading is Fundamental) has selected Africa is My Home for their 2015 Multicultural Book list.  For it they’ve done this wonderful guide for parent, families, and teachers for the book. Thank you so so much!

Our 2015 Multicultural Book Collection includes 39 children’s books specially selected to encourage children’s interest and learning in a broad range of topics, from science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) to history and social studies. The Collection also emphasizes multiculturalism and diversity in its books’ content, characters, authors, and illustrators.

Each book is vetted by children’s literacy experts, and comes with accompanying Common Core-aligned learning resources and activities for parents, teachers, and caregivers to deepen students’ engagement with the texts. The Multicultural Book Collection and its companion activities were an integral part of our landmark Read for Success research study and program model. Learn more about how the Collection can help students stop the summer slide and keep learning throughout the year.
