Boston Globe "The Find": Growing Up Global "is an outstanding place to start" to give children a global perspective.


Giving children a world view

September 6, 2009 (From Shelf Life, by Jan Gardner)

Helping children to appreciate the myriad religions and cultures around the world is a daunting task. Growing Up Global: Raising Children to Be At Home in the World’’ by Homa Sabet Tavangar (Ballantine) is an outstanding place to start. Tavangar speaks four languages, has lived on four continents, and is a consultant with an international clientele. The book grew out of her experiences living in West Africa with her three young daughters. Returning to Philadelphia, Tavangar developed a workbook of activities – from music and movies to food and games – to foster a global perspective without having to go abroad.
