      What Does It Mean To Be Global? By Rana DiOrio. "In this whimsically-drawn and thoughtfully-told story, 4 to 7 year old children learn what it means to be global by visiting the pyramids, eating sushi, celebrating Kwanzaa, and learning how to say 'hello' in Swahili. Winner of the Multicultural Non-Fiction category of the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and named Benjamin Franklin Award Finalist, the book is a conversation starter for parents educators."

      To to be able to think historically I think kids should be able to think on a global scale and integrate social studies into their regular thinking of the world around them. This book is great to introduce this idea.(We love this book by author, Rana DiOrio on raising the next generation of Global Citizens.)
