Read the World Book Club

IMG_2246

Welcome! This page is your go-to spot for reading your way around the world as a family.

In case you’re new here, the Read the World Book Club is a joint project between myself and Sarah Mackenzie of the Read-Aloud Revival.

It’s based on my bestselling book, Give Your Child the World: Raising Globally Minded Kids One Book at a Time.

As a community, we went through this experience together during the summer of 2016, but you can continue to use them to explore the world with your kids any time of year!

A copy of the book and a library card are all you need to read your way around the world, and in the posts below we’ve provided lots of extras like video clips, recipes and even cool printables and downloadable maps!

Just click the photos below to be taken to each destination. Each post contains new printables to use and have fun with. Enjoy!
