Here in the Children’s Room we like to celebrate the diversity found in our city. We currently have books on display about Martin Luther King Day and in the near future we will have a Black History Month display. There is a Multicultural section in our Parent/Teacher corner. We have a Language section where you can find books to read in various languages as well as items to help you learn other languages. There is also a section where you can find books in Braille as well as books about sign language. In row 2 look for the books at j305.8 that provide information about Americans of various nationalities or the books at j394.26 that provide information about holidays around the world. In row 4 look for books at j641.59 that provide information about cooking the foods of different cultures.
