Children's Books:
A Lens into the World

In his recent book Thank You for Being Late, Pulitzer Prize winner and NY Times columnist Thomas Friedman writes:

The three largest forces on the planet--technology, globalization, and  climate change--are all accelerating at once.... When there is a change in the pace of change in so many realms at once, as we are now experiencing, it is easy to get overwhelmed by it all.
Children's books make it fun and easy to build an understanding of these crucial trends and spark some amazing conversations! Below are a few of our favorites for reading aloud with lower elementary schoolers.
