I am looking to create a multicultural and multilingual classroom library. I want the stories in my classroom to take students on a journey around the world. I want the books to transport them to different worlds, cultures and time periods. My students have told me that they are sick of reading books with characters that don't look like them. Our current school library is outdated and includes many white heroes and heroines. I would like to purchase texts that highlight a diverse cast of characters. Another issue that my students have brought to my attention, is that there aren't many novels that are in their native language. I would like to provide my students with books that are in Spanish, so they can further their love of reading in a language they are comfortable with.
