Last week I hinted that you’d want to get your copies of Give Your Child the World: Raising Globally Minded Kids One Book at a Time in hand as soon as possible, so you can use it for something fun this summer.

Well, today I can finally spill the beans! Several months ago I had the idea of celebrating the launch of my book with a summer book club for you and yours.

And because books are always better shared, I’ve teamed up with the fabulous Sarah Mackenzie of the Read-Aloud Revival to create the Read the World Summer Book Club–a club that’s going to take us all around the world this summer, one book at a time!

Take a peek:

I‘ve been telling the kids that the book is my new baby and their little sister, so on launch day we did a short “newborn photo session” to prove it. (I know, imagine what my sweet family have to put up with. Note the perplexed faces on the poor children staring at the new addition to the family, LOL.)

Speaking of launch day, folks, oh my. What a gift I’ll treasure forever!

Thanks to all your enthusiasm and support, Give Your Child the World ended up in the Top 100 of ALL books sold, made it onto Amazon’s Movers and Shakers list, and reached #1 in all its categories. I felt like the internet was giving me a big hug all day–so, so grateful.

And in case you missed it, I had the chance to make my vlogging debut, share the front porch with Ann Voskamp, and share the microphone with Sarah Mackenzie earlier in the week!

A day I thought would never comeWritten by Jamie C. Martin of Simple Homeschool

So, how to convey in writing the culmination of something you’ve been working and dreaming toward for five years?

I can’t.

Instead today, on launch day for Give Your Child the World, I decided to say it to you:

It’s a tool for those who want their kids to grow up loving the neighbor next door as well as the one on the other side of the globe.

It’s for parents who hope to raise book lovers and world-changers.

More than just a title to read once and return to the shelf, this resource includes over 600 hand-picked children’s book recommendations, organized by region, country, and age range (ages 4-12).
