Multicultural Books

Actually, many of these books are now available online from many different libraries from around the world. Whie they may not sell many copies in the US, a number of popular Arabic and African children's books are available from the UN or the Alexandria library (http://www.bibalex.org/English/index.aspx)
        Other good children's books from around the world can be found electronically from the Pennsylvani university site at: http://digital.library.upenn.edu/books/
        Regretfully, not enough countries insist on putting their national literature online in the original language and in translation for the rest of the world to enjoy. I wish they would.
