I’m thrilled to be part of the Read Around the World summer series from the Multicultural Kid Blogs – a series that allows followers to travel the world through books from many countries and cultures. Today is my day to choose a book! The book I selected, 14 Cows for America (affiliate link), commemorates September 11th in a beautiful story about the kindness of strangers and the beauty of empathy. I love that this book takes something as difficult as this:
And leaves an inspiring and uplifting message. This book is a wonderful book to include in a unit on September 11th. As a year-round read it communicates a powerful message about the importance of kindness, empathy, and the interconnectedness of our world.
Read around the world this summer with great books recommended by the bloggers of the Multicultural Kid Blogs group – and friends! This series includes books in several different languages, but they are all accessible even if you do not speak the target language. You can find all of the posts from this series on the Read Around the World Summer Reading Pinterest board, so be sure to follow! You can also join the discussion on the Multicultural Kid Blogs Facebook page and G+ community! What books can you recommend to introduce our children to the world? Please add your links in the comments if you have them; I would love to add them to my Global Learning and World Culture for Kids boards on Pinterest!
How are you traveling the world this summer? If you are in the United States, what are you doing to celebrate the Fourth of July today? It’s my 34th birthday! We are mostly unpacking from our trip to Massachusetts, where we soaked up lots of US History, but I’m sure we will find something to do for fun as well!
