2010 Multicultural Booklist (grades K-4)

Thanks to the generous support of Macy’s, RIF will donate more than 400 multicultural children’s book collections to elementary school classrooms in low‐income communities throughout the United States. The 2010 Multicultural Book Collection includes 30 hardcover children's books representing American Indian, African‐American, and Hispanic themes as well as selections from additional culture groups.
