When we visit with families they always have some kind of refreshment for us. For example: dim sum in Hong Kong; rice deserts in Malaysia; cake & hot chocolate in Germany; baklava in Israel; Humus in Egypt; and even fermented horse milk in Mongolia. As we enjoy our treats with each family we take the opportunity to show them our E3 book.

It never ceases to amaze me how they love our books! Country after country, family after family… the children love the books! We show them the different pages “And we will have a book all about shapes, animals, and children around the world—just like you.” The children grin ear to ear, giggle, and get excited as they thoughtfully look through all the pages learning about other children.

Children in Egypt are fascinated by the children in Japan and Mongolia. The children in Israel are fascinated by the children in America and Germany. And on it goes. They love seeing children just like themselves living in faraway places. They begin to realize that, although other children live in quite different circumstances, they are very much the same.

This is exactly what we want to teach and share with the world through our books. It is exciting to see it happening a little bit at a time already!
