We need more multicultural books

We got a wonderful review for A Rainbow in My Pocket by Anita Silvey (author and literary critic) in her facebook:

Today I read A Rainbow in My Pocket, first published in Persian, and now available from Tiny Owl Press in London. Ali Seidabadi and Hoda Haddadi have captured the whimsical thoughts of a young Iranian girl, who reminds me of many young Americans. I was particularly taken with these lines: “I wish people/Would talk using only nice words- /Poetry/ Songs,/ Not harsh words/ That prod/ And poke you.” We need more multicultural books in our home and library collections and also more books created in other countries like A Rainbow in My Pocket. Thank you Ali for this inspiring and beautiful book.
