Definitely add this to the mix to create interested world citizens (Kirkus)
The more I look through The Barefoot Book of Children, the more I love it and discover. A vivid embodiment of global citizenship, the book can serve as a great read-aloud at home or at school, as a stimulating prompt for creative projects and conversation, or as a gentle companion to explore the myriad ways we can live and thrive on our little planet. (Homa Sabet Tavangar, Global Education Adviser/Author)
The Barefoot Book of Children lays the foundation that young children need to respect and protect the rights of other children like them in their own backyard and around the world. (Caryl Stern, President and CEO U.S. Fund for UNICEF)
