Question:

How have children’s interests changed or remained the same in regards to books containing multicultural characters or themes?

Answer:

Going from working in a primarily “white” area to a primarily Black & Hispanic area, I had thought the kids’ interests would differ. I was wrong. Especially with K-5th grades- they just like what they like, and what is popular (which is Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries). This does tend to change as they get older, though- I’m thinking of the Bluford High series, etc. One area I guess I have seen a huge change in children’s interests is in Japanese Manga. That seems to have its own subculture here. And the kids LOVE it. And now that I think about it more, with the REALLY little kids- the TV shows featuring multicultural characters (Dora, Diego, Kai Lin, etc) mean they ask for those books more.

Question:

There is much symbolism in Steinbeck's 'The Grapes of Wrath.' Please choose one example and expand on it.

Answer:

There is much symbolism in the Grapes of Wrath, particularly of Biblical nature. One such example is that of Connie Rivers- Rose of Sharon's young husband. After suffering with the Joad family's plight for a stretch, he abandons/betrays them as Judas Iscariot did Christ in the Bible.
