Two People I Most Admire

Announcing ARC Partnership with Alma Flor Ada & F. Isabel Campoy

Dear Friend,

American Reading Company is delighted to announce that Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy, award-winning authors and educators, have joined with us in a partnership to expand Spanish programs for bilingual, dual language, and world language classrooms.

These accomplished educators and honored authors are pioneers in the development of multicultural and bilingual books for children. Both share our mission of developing programs that ensure that every child becomes an engaged, successful reader, regardless of native language or current level of achievement. They are committed to providing students with literature that reflects and honors their life experiences and culture. Through this partnership, our book collections are further enhanced by Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy's deep understanding of language acquisition theory, their wide and expert knowledge of the literature published in Spanish, and their unique sensitivity toward multicultural perspectives as an affirming and enriching value in education.
