Read Around the World

Some children eat miso soup for breakfast, others eat toast with chocolate spread. Depending on where they live, children might take a boat, bike or bus to school. Books are a great way to expose children to these differences, and the similarities in the lives of children around the world. Learning about diverse cultures through high quality, well researched books can help kids develop respect and empathy for people from all countries and cultures. Here are some excellent choices, starting with two books that feature individual children and their daily lives.
