* Support your ethnically diverse community

There is a huge and growing population of foreign-born and first-generation Americans. According to the US Census Bureau, approximately 68 million people spoke a foreign language at home in the year 2013 (approximately 20% of all US residents). Many of these are parents and children who would benefit greatly from additional reading materials in their home language.

The materials available in our schools and libraries should reflect the diversity in our communities. Offering books in a family's home language promotes literacy and parental involvement.

* Get more for your money with dual-language texts

The options are greater with dual-language books than with single-language books. The stories and illustrations are so fantastic that readers may choose to use them for multiple purposes:

  • Non-English speaking parents can help their children maintain a native language, preserve their heritage and "connect" with their children.
  • English speaking families can introduce their kids to a foreign language.
  • Teachers and families can use them to expose children to other languages and cultures and build multicultural classrooms.
  • Educators and librarians can offer bilingual or multicultural story time activities.
  • Some readers will enjoy the stories only in English. The creative and entertaining stories certainly rival the best English-only children's books available!
