Give Your Child the World: Week 5 – Middle East

See this post for an explanation of this Summer Book Club. Check out the Middle East post at Simple Homeschool, for free printables and other ideas. I’m behind again. :) Week 5 was actually last week, and we are still working our way through the books.

Give Your Child the World: Week 4 – North America

Martin who blogs over at Simple Homeschool popped on my radar a few weeks ago. It’s called “Give Your Child the World: Raising Globally Minded Kids One Book at a Time.” It didn’t take long to decide to order it and once it arrived, I read the whole…
