Welcome to Read Around the World. Every one of us is a citizen of the entire planet so we are actually looking at the countries of our Earth neighbors when we spin the globe. This section of abookandahug.com has been designed to make it easy for young readers to explore a different neck of the woods through books whether picture book, middle reader or young adult titles. Our hope is that by reading stories from these countries, all children will see the connections between us and the many similarities between us. Through this knowledge hopefully will come acceptance and friendship.
Click on a continent to find books from that part of the world and once you arrive at your continent page, you can click on an individual country to find books at the different reading levels.
Your reading travels can take you through Asia/Australia/Oceania and on to Africa, South America and Central America.
We wish you wonderful journeys!
