Young children live with awe and wonder as their daily companions. But as they grow, worries often crowd out wonder. Knowing this, how can parents strengthen their kids’ love for the world so it sticks around for the long haul?


Thankfully, parents have at their fingertips a miracle vaccine—one that can boost their kids' immunity to the world’s distractions. Well-chosen stories connect us with others, even those on the other side of the globe. Build your kids’ lives on a story-solid foundation and you’ll give them armor to shield themselves from the world’s cynicism. You’ll give them confidence to persevere in the face of life’s conflicts. You’ll give them a reservoir of compassion that spills over into a lifetime of love in action.


Give Your Child the World features inspiring stories, practical suggestions, and carefully curated reading lists of the best children’s literature for each area of the globe. Reading lists are organized by region, country, and age range (ages 4-12). Each listing includes a brief description of the book, its themes, and any content of which parents should be aware.

Parents can introduce their children to the world from the comfort of home by simply opening a book together. Give Your Child the World is poised to become a bestselling family reading treasury that promotes literacy, develops a global perspective, and strengthens family bonds while increasing faith and compassion.

Editorial Reviews

As parents, we have a deep desire to raise our kids with cultural sensitivity and aware- ness. So much so that we've made traveling around the world as a family a priority, to give our kids rich cultural experiences that we hope will shape them into adults who make a difference. I only wish I'd had Jamie's amazing book before we started traveling, to help me find books for our kids to read in preparation for the places we visited. But even better, I think it's the perfect tool for those who aren't able to travel. Stories are one of the best ways to develop empathy, compassion, and gain someone else's perspective, and these book recommendations will give your kids the incomparable gift of being able to "travel" the world through story.
