If the World Were a Village

I bought a children's book a couple of weeks ago, after telling myself, "No more buying books! The book shelf is full to the max."

We were browsing at the store "Ten Thousand Villages" and there it was, "If the World Were a Village", by David Smith. This book is about "world-mindedness," which to me is a never ending learning curve. It is the sense that our planet is actually a village (like Vonda, Saskatchewan!). I am amazed how much I can learn from these books written for kids! This one has helped me learn more about the Earth, its' population and where, why and how we can make the world a better place. I hope I can foster the attitude of world-mindedness in my boys.

Hope you get the chance to read this one!

Happy reading!

treehouse has a cartoon on this book, i think. it has the same name anyway, and it's pretty neat! i didn't realize it was a book though.

That's one of my favorite stories too! And, yes, it is a cartoon as well. We actually check it out from the library quite often. Enjoy!!
