Product Description

From Booklist

Gr. 3^-6. Students from the G. T. Cunningham Elementary School in Vancouver, British Columbia, participated in a yearlong artist-in-residence program that emphasized intergenerational and intercultural studies. Children created mixed-media collages and explanatory text that became the traveling art exhibit reproduced in this volume. Twenty-eight selections, by artists from 8 to 12 years old, depict the cultural and individual heritages of these students. The accompanying text--transcribed in both English and the student's native language--explains each family's values and includes pieces by the child and a family elder. Viewed as a whole, the presentation underscores the fact that beneath exterior differences, people are much the same. An excellent choice for multicultural units, especially those involving art classes. Kay Weisman

As a Canadian I find that this book is an excellant example of what can be achieved through exploring our multi-culturalism. The children's artwork, coupled with the text make this book very informative to others so they can understand a little about other cultures, and see the differences and similarities. What I find to be an added bonus is that the text is written both in English, and the writers native language! An excellent read for children mostly, but still enjoyable to adults.
