We have access to a great inter-library loan system, and I am always looking for great children’s books that will teach our daughters about the cultures and countries where our Compassion International kids live. Here are a few books we’ve really enjoyed.
A Country Far Away has a really interesting format. Each page has a simple sentence or two with illustrations above and below to show how each action would play out in a small village in Africa or in the suburbs here in America. The drawings in the book capture your attention and help children to see how different life is in these two locations.
The following pair of books are from a series featuring different countries.
Each page features a different letter, with facts and illustrations that helped us learn a bit more about culture in Guatemala and India.
Have you read any children’s books that go along with your Compassion sponsorships? If so, please tell us about them!
I have more books on hold at the library, so I will share them in the coming week!
