I found an amazing book that will help your children learn about new cultures! They might be more grateful for where they live and what they have after reading it. They might want to visit some of these places in order to experience what they read themselves.
Best of all, they may want to try something new!
What are the most common things that you do everyday? Playing, eating, doing chores are just a few things that come to my mind. What if you could peek inside someone else’s world and see how they do those things?
That’s what the new book Here and There does for children! From Buying groceries to exercising and holidays, this book gives insight on the typical lives of people all around the world!
Learn About New Cultures with Here and There!
Not only will this book be a great reference for your studies on different cultures, but you’ll also find new ways of doing things! I can’t wait to have my children try a couple of the chores that kids do in different cultures. LOL! Yes, I’m THAT mom! My kids are most excited about celebrating some of the festivals and holidays!
One of their favorite parts of the book talked about the different modes of transportation people used. In Norway, some children ski to get where they want to go!
My son asked, “What if you don’t know how to ski?” Great question right!? I asked him what other ways you could get around in a lot of snow and we brainstormed some other things like snowshoes and sleds. The book offered a great opportunity for discussions like those!
Here are the topics briefly covered in the book:
- Buying Groceries
- Playing Outdoors
- Traveling to School
- Healthy Eating
- New Year
- Getting Around
It’s a perfect introduction for ages 6-11 to the different ways people live around the world! After you read about them, then go out and do something or eat something that’s from another culture.
If you like the look of this book, then you might want to check out some of my other book reviews from other cultures like:
