All children can benefit from building new friendships and repairing old ones. For the librarian, teacher, or parent who wishes to foster compassionate multicultural relationships between and among children, this manual offers help. It includes an annotated bibliography of children's books that contain characters of different cultural heritages who display friendship with others. For each book listed, Roberts highlights the heritage of the book's main character(s), the age levels for which it is intended, and includes detailed plans, materials to use, objectives, activities, and discussion questions. The stories and accompanying activities will help children build associations with others, understand the value of support groups, and recognize the value of friendships. Sample lessons from selected books show educators and parents how such literature can be used to help children develop friendship skills. Children's books are categorized by family friendships, neighborhood and community friendships, and world friendships. Contains a broad sampling of quality picture books for children ages 5-8, as well as books without pictures for children ages 9-14.
