Have you wanted to help your child learn about and appreciate different parts of the world and the people in it, but weren't sure where to start? This book is every parent's answer to that dilemma!
When my friend Shari told me about Give Your Child The World: Raising Globally Minded Kids One Book At A Time, and how much she loved it, I was immediately intrigued. Now, having gone through it, I completely understand -it's fabulous!
Author Jamie C. Martin loves traveling. She met her British husband in Eastern Europe and they have enjoyed seeing the world together. But as children joined their family through birth and international adoption, naturally they needed to adapt their lifestyle a little. Though they still travel as often as they can, Jamie has come to realize that there are a variety of ways (outside of actually going to foreign countries) of exposing children to different people, cultures, food and history. And this book is your ticket to joining her!
Give Your Child The World explains how to open the world to your child in an easy-to-do way. Picture books, international dinners, everyday uses for maps, and expert tips about reading to children in a way that will keep their attention are just a few. But the heart of the book is really the fantastic book lists it holds. There is a book list for every region of the world, complete with titles, author names and short summaries of each book.
It is a treasure trove of already curated, best-of-the-best books relating to Africa, Europe, Asia, Middle East, North America, Latin America, Australia, Oceania and the Polar Regions and the people who live there. Have a particular country in mind? No problem- she has a fantastic index that makes books about it easy to find. This is the perfect resource to take with you to the library as you try to find quality books for your children.
I haven't read all of the books recommended, but I have read several of them and I have to agree with Jamie that they certainly open up a child's mind in a beautiful, thoughtful way that helps them to appreciate others. It is something I definitely think you will want to check out.
Community Question: Are you fascinated by a certain country? Which one?
Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
