Give Your Child the World, a review
The subtitle of this book is Raising Globally Minded Kids One Book at a Time. Which describes what makes this book very special. Jamie Martin is married to a man from England and along with her birth son, adopted a child from Liberia and a child from India.
Her husband is the CEO of Love146, an organization whose goal is to abolish childhood slavery, so one can say the family knows a thing or two about the cultures and countries of the world.
I appreciated how this book is set up, first by telling the author's story so we are drawn in to her world. Second, there is a section on everyday ways our own families can learn about other cultures. The rest of the book gives us hundreds of books divided by geography as well as age group, fiction and nonfiction books that will help each of us understand other parts of the world.
Our children are growing up with a global perspective. This book is exactly what every parent needs to take to the library with advice written by one who comes from a Christian viewpoint who has a God given love for other people. I wish I had this book when we were homeschooling. Highly recommended.
The forward to the book is by Tsh Oxenreider and the author blogs at SimpleHomeschool.net.
This book was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.
