"This collection of essays addresses the idea of cultural authentiaty in children's literative. The collection includes essays by children's book authors and illustrators, editors, and teachers. Rather than trying to arrive at one definition of cultural authentiaty, the book offers multiple perspectives. The essays refer to one another, sometimes directly, and thus the collection as a whole is more cohesive than usual for edited collections."Fox, Dana L. is the author of 'Stories Matter The Complexity of Cultural Authenticity in Children's Literature' with ISBN 9780814147443 and ISBN 0814147445.
