Table of Contents Multicultural 1. Multicultural a. Gonzalez, R. Ruiz, A., (1995). Mi primer libro de dichos/My first book of proverbs. New York: Children’s Book Press. Mi Primer Libro de Dichos/My First Book of Proverbs b. This is the first book for both illustrators. It is comprised of a number of Spanish proverbs that are also translated into English. Each proverb is accompanied by an illustration to match it. c. I love that this book incorporates both Spanish and English languages. It allows one to make comparisons between cultures. In addition the illustrations of are colorful and reflective of much of the Spanish culture. I feel that this book would be a great book for a variety of ages of children. It would be a great way to introduce a different culture and to help children make a connection between a different culture and their own. d. 2. Nonfiction a. Bishop, N. (2008) Frogs. Singapore: Scholastic. b. This is a nonfiction book that tells about frogs. Within the pages one can find a variety of fun facts about frogs, as well as more detailed information about specific species of frogs. c. I found this book to be very engaging. The layout of the book was great, because it included interesting pictures with short bits of information. This format created a book that is nicely chunked for children. I believe that this book would be wonderful to use by presenting it little by little to students. In addition, students could use it if they were doing research on frogs or just if it was a subject that they were interested in. d. Other books: Spiders, Marsupials, Digging for Bird Dinosaurs, The Mysterious Universe 3. Nonfiction a. McCourt, L. (1999) Candy counting. United States: Bridgewater Books. b. This is a book that serves as an introduction to counting. It aims to present story problems about candy as a way to engage children to be more interested in math. In addition, the book includes ideas for activities that adults can do to help children with their math. c. Although this book provides good practice for children, I do not know that it is something that I would use directly in my classroom. I feel that the book would be better suited as something that children could take home to their parents to get some extra practice with math. However, some of the ideas within the book might serve as good inspiration for a lesson. d. Other books: Merry Christmas, Stinky Face, I Love You Stinky Face, I Miss You, Stinky Face, Granny’s Dragon 4. Poetry & Verse
