Next stop on Carole P. Roman’s around the world trip is
This series introduces children to
cultural exploration and answers the questions that children would most likely
ask. What would children in Scotland call their mom and dad? What games would
they play, and what do they celebrate? What kinds of foods are common? Where
are the fun places to visit?
Each book in the series has a pronunciation guide and definitions for more complicated or unfamiliar words. It has colorful illustrations and easy to read text. I highly recommend not only
but all of the books in this series. What a wonderful way to teach children
about their peers around the world without any politics involved. I also think
they would be wonderful for elementary age Sunday Schools to spark an interest
in missions around the world.
