Good Night, Sweet Dreams is an excellent introduction about accepting those who are different from us. Cultural diversity in education, whether at school or at home, continues to be important to society. Teaching respect of others is one aspect of this book. It’s an excellent way to open lines of communication between parent and child, teacher and student.
Many educational objectives state that in order to achieve social and emotional learning standards, schools should address student development holistically and relate it to real world functioning. It is important to select culturally appropriate materials and examples that respect individual differences while at the same time acknowledging and celebrating the cultural diversity of students within the classroom, school, community, state, nation and world. Good Night, Sweet Dreams fits this criteria plus encourages early reading skills.
