Most of us can’t travel the world with our kids. But that shouldn’t keep up us from traveling the world with them through books. Today on the Read-Aloud Revival Podcast, Rea Berg and I are talking about how to take your kids (of all ages) around the world through picture books.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • why no one ‘grows past’ picture books
  • the joy and accomplishment that comes with sharing a book with all ages
  • how we can give our kids a heart for the world through carefully chosen books

Around the World with Picture Books

Quotes to remember:

“A picture book is an art museum in your child’s lap.”

“I think that’s the real beauty of a classic children’s book or an award-winning children’s book: as an adult when you sit down and read it with your child, you’re getting just as much out of it as the child. Often, just because of our perspective and our life experience, even more than your child is getting.”

“Even if you‘ve never been a reader your whole life, you can pick up a picture book with your child or a grandparent that’s never been a reader. And it can be a door to whole new worlds for us.”
