A few weeks ago one of the students in our Stanford Teacher Education Program wrote asking if Cubberley Library had bilingual children's books.  She wrote "I am hoping to gather a collection of books to read aloud to expose young children to different languages as a start to learning to respect and appreciate different cultures." We have many in Spanish/English that are listed in our Spanish and Spanish/English children's books guide, but we needed to scramble to find books in other languages.  Thanks to the efforts of Kelly Roll working with the student and other Stanford librarians, we now have books in a variety of languages.  These can be found in our new guide Bilingual children's books.
