Multicultural Kids Books
Teaching my children about the world is something I am most passionate about and one of the easiest ways I find is through multicultural kids books. I am a big advocate of reading in general, and multicultural books not only encourage children to use their imaginations and improve their vocabulary, but can also open a child’s mind up to some new exciting and different topics. A children’s library should be filled with diverse books including those about other places and cultures.
Le Toboggan is an international bookstore in Australia run by Filipa Pinto, a multilingual Portuguese native, now living in Australia. Raising two children with three different languages, Filipa launched Le Toboggan after initially finding it difficult to find books in different languages. Now, it has become a popular resource for parents searching for multicultural books, and books in languages such as Spanish, French, German, Italian and many more!
Enter for your choice of one of the following books!
The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales
Seven stories gathered from all corners of the world: Bali, India, Nigeria, Whales, Kazakhstan, Australia and the American South West. Each with engaging stories that teach valuable life lessons based on traditional folktales. With earthy coloured illustrations each story includes a hands on activity for your child to make.
African Animals ABC’s
This book, suitable for toddlers and young children walks your child through the alphabet with rhyming text and pictures of different African animals. Each bright coloured illustration makes it easy for children to become engaged and start learning. The end pages contain a glossary and description about each animal. I have been reading this book with both my two and four year old who thoroughly enjoy it.
