Multicultural Children’s Literature that Teaches Global Awareness
Amy’s Travels tells the tale of a young Hispanic girl who has traveled the globe and lived internationally and teaches young readers a geography lesson about the seven continents. The reader will travel to each continent with the main character, young Amy, and take in the culture, climate, and animal life.
This engaging story is based on the true life experiences of the author’s friend, whose diverse and multicultural adventures provide an educational tool for young readers. Amy’s Travels motivates children to read and appreciate global awareness.
