Furthermore, the study aimed to evaluate the project as a means for developing culturally responsive teaching practices in preservice early childhood teachers. The Students' responses indicated that the reading of multicultural children's books enabled the future early childhood teachers to identify more closely with people of a culture other than their own and to develop knowledge, empathy, and commitment to improving the well-being of their future students.
