Lu explains that there are multicultural books that add on to the negative stereotypes of many diverse communities and as teachers, we need to be careful in only selecting books that assist us in creating socially conscious human beings.

It is great you mention this because teachers often forget to check this or just don’t even know. Many books may look culturally friendly but, fall more on the racist side than on the multicultural side. I can imagine that for teachers who want to have a diverse repetoire of books in their class library it must be hard to check every book but, it is absolutely crucial like Lu says.
