Multicultural Guide Books

Jingle Dancer, Rain Is Not My Indian Name, and Indian Shoes are all recommended titles in "Culturally Speaking: Contemporary Native Americans" by Sherry York (Library Media Connection, November/December 2004). It's essentially an annotated bibliography of contemporary Native books, divided by picture books--fiction, fiction, series, and biography for young readers.

I see that the author has a new book coming out, too:

Ethnic Book Awards by Sherry York (Linworth Publishing, 2005). "A unique resource for Americas, Asian Pacific American, Carter G. Woodson, Coretta Scott King, Pura Belpre, Syndney Taylor, and Tomas Rivera Awards!"

York is also the author of Picture Books by Latino Writers: A Guide for Librarians, Teachers, Parents, and Students (March 2002); Children's and Young Adult Literature by Latino Writers: A Guide for Librarians, Teachers, Parents, and Students (August 2002); and Children's and Yiung Adult Literature by Native Americans: A Guide for Librarians, Teachers, Parents, and Students (April, 2003).
