geography, Give Your Child the World Study

Our Summer “School”

I’m sneaking in “school” this summer!  We have a lot of fun things planned to do, but I want to sneak in some intention book learning too.  I found this great book called  Give Your Child the World: Raising Globally Minded Kids One Book at a Time by Jamie C Martin.  (This is not one of my regular reviews, I got the book myself and I love it so much I want to share it with you!!)

This is a book about books about people all over the world!  Each section is divided by age to help you find books quickly for your children.  I have focused on picture books up to about 8 year old and requested them from my library.

I’m loosely following Ms. Martin’s Summer Reading program.  We started with multicultural books and we “travel” all over the world by continent or region.  I have been working on collecting items from other countries and storing them together.  I pulled them out and put them in Dollar Tree baskets to go with the chapters of the book/regions we will be studying.

I hope we become more aware of people all of the world and how they live.  I also hope we explore new food!  It’s a good way to get picky eaters to try things, right?  Please follow our adventures as we travel to new places this summer!!
