The book begins giving some of Jamie's background and her passion for the world and for books. She provides some great ideas on how to integrate reading into your children's daily lives, and fostering in them a love of books. And then the book lists begin. Now, these are not just random lists. These are purposely selected by Jamie for their quality and for their educational value in exposing your children to other cultures. The chapters for the reading lists are as follows: Multicultural Books, Africa, Europe, Asia, Middle East, North America, Latin America, Oceania and Polar. Divided into age groups, each title also has a summary and suggestions of how to use it with your children. There are also snippets throughout of how other families give the children the world in their home throughout.
As someone who has travelled a lot, like Jamie, this really hits home for me. It is so important to
I'm excited about this list, and this direction provided, of quality books to start collecting for our personal library also. I would definitely recommend this book.
Please note that Booklook provided me a copy of this book for my review, however, this review is entirely my own.
