The importance of culturally relevant literature

Having worked in an international school setting for over 10 years I have developed a great interest in how children acquire a second language as well as the importance of culturally relevant literature. Below is a link to an article I wrote with a colleague on this subject for The National newspaper as well as a flyer which gives a brief description of my series of 30 levelled books aimed for children in the middle east (My Gulf World and Me) which was published by Pearson Education last year.
