Multicultural Easter Books


So with Easter a few weeks away, I thought I would look at some multicultural Easter books. I discovered these are not all that easy to find. Unlike the Christmas books, which I found many multicultural books and divided by race, I only found a few Easter books. As a result I have three new categories: Multicultural Easter books (books with at least one non-Caucasian character), Easter around the world and cultural Easter books. Most of these books I found at our local library network (though some I have not gotten yet and others we have not read yet).
