Hearing All the Voices is an annotated bibliography of over 500 books for adolescents, each containing a multicultural message. Authors Mary Ann Darby and Miki Pryne have expanded the definition of multiculturalism beyond ethnicity to include homosexuality, non-traditional families, mental and physical disabilities, and substance abuse. Part One provides practical applications for use both in the classroom, and at home and prepares the educator by discussing how students might respond to the literature. Part Two, the main text, contains the annotated bibliography. Part Three includes topics for literary circles and cross-curricular study, suggesting book lists and indexing the entries by author and culture for easy reference. The user-friendly design of this book will help guide parents, educators, and media specialists to the books that open the doors of diversity for young adults.
