I’m so excited to share the news about my new piece in Highlights for Children! Just take a look on the inside cover of the March 2017 issue. It’s a small piece, but the topic is really appropriate for today and I think, is a fun way to get to know more about the people in our communities and around the world.
What are some of your favorite ways to learn about new cultures? One of my favorites that isn’t in Highlights is to read the fairy tales or myths and legends treasured by a culture or community. We have quite a few collections of stories from different places we’ve visited, from the Amish to the Irish, from Pacific Northwest to the desert Southwest, from the islands of the Caribbean to the islands of Micronesia.
Learning about cultures is so important, especially today. My piece offers kids and families a few easy and exciting ideas, so let me know if you try any of the activities. If you do, snap a photo and share your experiences with me and I’ll share them with my readers!
