More than ever before, the celebration of cultural diversity and multilingualism has become of immense importance in children's education today. Teachers and parents now recognise that children who have been exposed to other cultures feel so much safer in our world today. This is because such children are better able to function successfully in any cultural environment they may find themselves. Such young people are also so much more rounded and tolerant of other customs and peoples. Delta Maria has collaborated with Waterstones , Blackwells and several Manchester Libraries to deliver educationally enriching Storytelling experiences to pupils from various schools in Cheshire and Greater Manchester.
