i asked miss morgan if i could start my Child Reads World journey by using her list of 196 countries she used in her year long project and she graciously said yes. she chose the countries in the United Nations including Taiwan. she also allowed for an additional country based on recommendations.
so as i begin, i'll start by checking off countries from her list and who knows? maybe i'll get a country that's not listed and add some more - how cool would that be!
i bought a world map so we can see where each country is on the map. i also bought an inflatable globe so we can point to the countries. it would be fun to see how many countries we can point to as we read more and more books.
