Pam Allyn Diversity Collections
A truly great book collection is both a window onto the world and a mirror reflecting the reader back to oneself. The child reading across many texts, and the classroom community reading these texts together, will become deeply connected to the reading experience by journeying through diverse perspectives and cultures. In this way, every child will feel a true part of the 21st century global world.--Pam Allyn
