For Librarians

Here are some ideas for encouraging kids to read great books set in countries around the world.

1.  Host a series of Read Around the World storytimes. Choose books from each booklist or use these suggestions: Read Around the World Storytime — a .doc document

2.  Print copies of the Read Around the World booklists and make them available to patrons: Read Around the World Booklists — a .doc document

3.  Offer kids the option of signing up for a Read Around the World challenge. For example, invite kids to sign up to read one book from each continent, give each participant a pretend passport and stamp the kids’ passports each time they “visit” a new country. Pretend Passport Template

4.  Offer books from the Read Around the World booklists as prizes for kids who meet reading goals.

5.  Add a link to the Delightful Children’s Books – Read Around the World page ( to your website.
