Slate Picks - The Best Children’s Books That Celebrate Mothers

Slate Picks - The Best Children’s Books That Celebrate Mothers | Multicultural Children's Literature | Scoop.it
Few experiences of parenthood can match the tenderness of reading a book with your child. And the best children’s books—with their lyricism, minimalism, and beautiful pictures—can hold equal wonder for adults. So what better time than Mother’s Day to share a great book with your child? And why not pick one that also, you know, celebrates how great moms are?
We queried top children’s book experts, authors, and librarians about their recommendations for Mother’s Day reading. You’ll find a range of children’s books that explore motherhood, family, and the love between children and their mothers in a host of ways. Among them are classics and a number of brand-new titles. All will remind you of how wondrous motherhood is. (And they might make great gifts for the moms in your life, too.)—Jay Deshpande

La Casa de Colores: A Project from Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera (The Poetry and Literature Center at the Library of Congress)

La Casa de Colores: A Project from Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera (The Poetry and Literature Center at the Library of Congress) | Multicultural Children's Literature | Scoop.it
La Casa de Colores, or "the House of Colors," is a house for all voices. In this house we will feed the hearth and heart of our communities with creativity and imagination. And we will stand together in times of struggle and joy. La Familia (The Family) is an opportunity for you to contribute to an epic poem of all our voices and styles and experiences that will run the span of my Laureateship. In El Jardín (The Garden) I will share my experiences with curators at the Library of Congress. (The Poetry and Literature Center at the Library of Congress).
Claudia M. Reder's insight:
Herrera's bilingual poetry books are wonderful. And now he is serving a second term as Poet laureate.  Add your contribution to the world poetry he is creating.
