bookshelves: multicultural-literature
Read in January, 2011

This book's use of repetition amongst numerous cultures and languages is what makes it great. Each section includes words in English and then the same motherly advice written in another language, providing a cool side-by-side comparison for children. Each section also contains two similar and color pictures depicting a mother and son doing various things together in ethnic garb. Each written section includes motherly advice, finishing with pictures of each young boy as an adult at the end of the book. This text would be a great opener to a multicultural unit or a discussion about languages and human commonalities.
