I love reading to my kids from interesting books explaining our global community and connection, and learning something new myself while doing that. Here are some books I’ve enjoyed reading to them over the past month:

Let There Be Peace – Prayers from around the world: Jeremy Brooks, Judy Daly.

My name is Sangoel: Karen Lynn Williams and Khadra Mohammed. Story of a boy leaving Sudan and finding his Dinka name & identity in the US.

Throw your Tooth on the Roof – Tooth Traditions from Around the World: Selby B. Beeler. The Tooth Fairy and Tooth Mouse already visit our house, so we had fun learning about other traditions!
