Welcome, welcome to the first week of our Read the World Summer Book Club! Sarah and I are both beyond thrilled to have you joining our families this summer as we explore the globe one book at a time.

For those of you who haven’t received Give Your Child the World yet, I’d recommend checking on Instagram for book suggestions to keep you going while you wait for it to arrive. Then when you have my book in hand, it will be a breeze to catch up on any weeks you may have missed–it’s definitely not too late to join in!
Remember to use the hashtag #GiveYourChildtheWorld on social media to share your family’s fun all summer long. And don’t forget that every child who completes the book club challenge can enter to win one of over $1,000 in donated prizes!!
No need to do anything yet (except keep track of the titles you read). There will be a form to complete at the end of the club in August. And remember, if all your titles come from suggestions in Give Your Child the World, you’ll receive double giveaway entries!
If you missed any other details, head to my first post to get your questions answered!
And now…on to Multicultural Week!
