Abstract
Research indicates that early childhood educators have been making use of diverse books and stories to expand the global consciousness of young readers inside the classroom [1], [2]. Children are meaning-making beings. As young architects of their worlds, they attempt to make sense of their reality through their immediate experiences or the comfort derived from the pages of a book. Leveraging on a research project that examines diverse picturebooks that explore socially and culturally sensitive issues for inclusive practices, this paper introduces participants to a range of multicultural and international picturebooks and will discuss the significance of having access to these titles.
