Hola! Shall we head to Latin America this week, friends? Everything you need to have some fun and learn plenty, too, is included below.

Before we begin, you have heard that Give Your Child the World is just $7 on Amazon for a limited time, right? Have you bought a copy and told your homeschooling friends?

I have no idea why Amazon behaves the way it does, but with back to school on everyone’s minds, this is the best time for a discount and I’m thrilled to see so many of you taking advantage of it. Thanks for the support and enjoy!
