A couple of weeks ago, we posted our review of The Greedy Sparrow, retold by Lucine Kasbarian, illustrated by Maria Zaikina (Marshall Cavendish Children’s Books, 2011). On her website, Lucine has a great study guide (also available as a pdf) to accompany the book, with activities for all ages, and a map showing Armenia and its bordering countries.
Also, read this insightful interview with Lucine over at Imagination Soup. It begins with the question “Can you talk about the importance for parents and teachers to read multicultural children’s books with their children?”… Yes, I knew you’d be interested – go and read it right now! (And thank you for the shout out for PaperTigers, Lucine.)
