Featuring a carefully curated reading treasury of the best children's literature for each area of the globe, as well as practical parenting suggestions and inspiration, Give Your Child the World helps moms and dads raise insightful, compassionate kids who fall in love with the world and are prepared to change it for good.

Young children live with awe and wonder as their daily companions. But as they grow, worries often crowd out wonder. Knowing this, how can parents strengthen their kids' love for the world so it sticks around for the long haul?

Thankfully, parents have at their fingertips a miracle vaccine--one that can boost their kids' immunity to the world's distractions. STORY.

Well-chosen stories connect us with others, even those on the other side of the globe. Build your kids' lives on a story-solid foundation and you'll give them armor to shield themselves from the world's cynicism. You'll give them confidence to persevere in the face of life's conflicts. You'll give them a reservoir of compassion that spills over into a lifetime of love in action.

Give Your Child the World includes more than 600 children's book recommendations from around the world. Reading lists are organized by region, country, and age range (ages 4-12). Each listing includes a brief description of the book, its themes, and any content of which parents should be aware.

Parents can introduce their children to the world from the comfort of home by simply opening a book together. Give Your Child the World is poised to become a bestselling family reading treasury that promotes literacy, develops a global perspective, and strengthens family bonds while increasing faith and compassion.

  Great for MFE ECC
Amy of Oregon City, 8/12/2016
This list works wonderfully with MFW ECC and Sonlight p4/5. I had good success finding a lot of the books on our inter-library loan. A lot from MFW list is not in our library so this list is great for filling in.

Though the books on this list are more "from" a culture rather than "about" a culture (though there are still quite a few that do experience/explain a culture). The 4-6 books are especially more story than culture. But, a lot of those 4-6 books will be great for introducing to our youngers who are not yet doing ECC.

This book is also written by a Christian author who adopted two children from other culture's.

I will also be submitting a list of the missing books to our brand new library in the hopes they'll purchase some ??
