The purpose of this study was to examine the current relationship between bilingual literature and multicultural curriculum, specifically in elementary level classes. An extensive review was completed on current research and resources available regarding both bilingual and multicultural materials. In an effort to demonstrate the ability to functionally combine these two areas a bilingual book was created. This book successfully meets most of the established criteria for both bilingual and multicultural literature. Therefore, the conclusion can be made that there is a natural and plausible overlap between these two areas and this should be further examined and developed in an effort to improve to overall curriculum being presented to elementary school students.
