My kids love to have books read to them and we all know how good it is for children to become interested in books. I feel that a love of books and reading naturally translates into a love of learning. Books are like an invitation to children to imagine and to be exposed to new things. My husband and I both love to travel and we wanted to find some children’s books about different cultures to help our kids realize what a big world we live in full of diversity. That is why I am happy to share with you a new book series called I See The Sun. These multicultural books for kids are a great way to introduce children to geography and culture at the same time.
I did receive the books in the hopes that I would provide my honest opinions. I did not receive monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.
I See The Sun- Multicultural Books For Kids
People always tell me my children have huge vocabularies and people often laugh in shock at the words they use. I think it is because I am always reading to them and when we come across new words, I let them guess what they mean from their context. They are often spot on with their guesses and if not I explain the meaning and give them another example of how they could use the word. Later that same day, I will hear my kids inserting the new words into sentences. Books are invaluable for learning vocabulary and grammar construction in fun, natural ways.
Books are also invaluable for teaching children about new things in fun ways. The I See the Sun books are great for teaching kids about different cultures. Each book talks about the day in the life of a child in a different country. It really opened their eyes to the fact that not every child grows up in the same way that they do.
I think it is very important to realize that there is a whole world full of variety in people and places and customs. I want my children to know about some of these different cultures and learn to respect them. These books are just what I was hoping for.
Children’s Books For Learning About Different Cultures And Geography At The Same Time
The I See the Sun Series engaged the interests of my children as they got a sneak peak into the life of children in other countries. I liked that there was nothing didactic about these books, they just show everyday life. It was also neat to expose them to bits of the languages of other countries. My kids really enjoyed the books and the artwork in the books! I enjoyed reading the cultural and geographical tidbits at the end of the book and being able to discuss that with my kids as well.
Every parent wants their children to have a knowledge, an empathy, an interest in the world they live in. The award-winning, I See The Sun Series of children’s books by Dedie King offers just that and something more…an opportunity to meet other children, just like them, from around the world (Nepal, Afghanistan, and China) and share a day in the life of that child starting from the rising of the sun. Just the title of this unparalleled series evokes peacefulness, serenity, and the possibility of learning something new. In a world where global events dominate the news and our children have the opportunity to witness other cultures, these books offer a unique perspective that simply isn’t available anywhere else. What’s more, they are quite frankly – captivating.
With the holiday season right around the corner, the I See The Sun Series makes the perfect, affordable, thoughtful gift for any youngster on your list. I love that these books for kids introduce culture and geography to kids in a fun way. They are a great accompaniment to these geography games kids will love.
