Use this great list of picture books about countries & cities around the world to raise a global citizen!
I don't know when it started but I've always been fascinated with maps, globes and learning about places around the world.
I love to see how people across the globe eat, live and spend their day. These everyday activities are a fun way to expose kids to cultures and traditions outside of their own.
But alas, globe-trotting just doesn't come that easy -- even for a traveling family like ours. It's expensive and takes quite a bit of time and planning.
So for years, I've made a conscious effort to introduce my kids to different countries and cultures thorough books, videos and some fun hands-on activities we can do close to home.
