I wish I could travel the world with my kids.
Experiencing new cultures, strange foods and crazy landmarks would be my kind of adventure.
Unfortunately, I can’t.
But I can give them the world in books.
Books can take you anywhere you want to go. Geography books are the best guide to learning about other people and places, aside from traveling.
