From Beautiful Feet Books:

Travel the world through delightful children’s picture books! Introduce your K-3rd children to world geography and culture with award-winning literature. Part One covers Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica. In Asia we explore China, Japan, Thailand, and India. In Africa we visit Morocco, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ghana. This course includes nature study, folktales, fables, music, art, poetry, and history.

Gentle Socratic questions are designed to prompt discussion and discovery. Geographic elements include country maps and flags for children to cut out, paint or color, encouraging journaling of all they are learning. Beautiful drawings of indigenous animals are also included which will familiarize students with some remarkable creatures, their habitat and habits, cultivating respect and wonder for the natural world.

Each country visited also includes a Library Connection, as well as History and Biography suggestions, so that parents can expand the study with additional recommendations. Each chapter concludes with a fun foray into the cuisine of the country with recipes, photos, and links to create a memorable evening visiting unique culinary creations from around the world.

    I absolutely LOVE this program. The stories are so lovely and a wonderful way to immerse your kiddos in a different culture. The Maps book is fantastic – my kids pour over it for hours and look forward to researching the foods, animals, geographical features and cultures that they see on the pages. The guide itself walks you through how to chat with your kids about the books and offers additional activities such as water color, recipes and more. It is the single one thing all my kids love most about homeschool and we get to do it together (My kiddos are age 6-11 at present). Learning and reading together has been my favorite part (besides trying out foods from different countries of course!). A simple and beautifully thought out curriculum that we will most likely repeat in a few years.
