Today we focus on America and celebrate all the glories of the United States, and America is, without question, a great country. But if you asked people from other countries around the world what the greatest country is, they're like to answer with the name of THEIR very own country, just like we do. Can we ALL have the best country? I think so, and I like to learn about other peoples' countries and cultures through books.
If you'd like to learn more about other cultures and countries in your reading this summer, here is a great list of fiction books compiled by author Mitali Perkins that you might want to explore. She has several books of her own, too. You can find those listed HERE.
