I've just been introduced to a terrific resource for parents who want to explore other countries of the world with their children through books, foods, films and games. A wonderful website called Delightful Children's Books is hosting a Read Around the World event and link-up on her blog this summer. Her goal is to collect resources to inspire parents to teach kids about the world. She has listed some great children's books about Europe like The Cat Who Walked Across France by Kate Banks and Georg Hallensleben, This is London by Miroslav Sasek, and The Greatest Skating Race: A World War II Story from the Netherlands by Louise Borden and Niki Daly.
The site's link-up page offers recipes, film suggestions, books, games, and craft ideas to help you expose your family to life and travels around the world.
