 expanding readers&#39; worlds, but traditionally this has meant teaching about single
 cultures, such as Latino, African American, and so on. U.S. census data from the
 last two decades indicates an increasingly racially mixed population (9 million
 in 2010). Including children&#39;s and young-adult literature with mixed-race content
 in the curriculum offers teachers and students rich and unique opportunities to
