Watch for Journey to Jo'burg (South Africa), Eve of the Emperor Penguin (Antarctica), Ruby's Wish (China), I Am Malala (Pakistan), Katie and the Mona Lisa (Italy), Elijah of Buxton (Canada), Hill of Fire (Mexico), and thousands more!
I decided to take this challange and turn it into parts so we're covering the 20 countries this summer just within Africa and we're going to do more countries throughout the year (and maybe into next year). My son is enjoying most of the books and we've both been learning about how those in other countries live?
My daughter is under two but I'm reading picture books off this list to her anyway. This list will be reusable many times as she gets older and I love having good books, from all the age groups, for all the countries around the world. I highly recommend this list.
