Getting kids to think outside of the "American box" is vitally important in this brave, new, globalized world in which America retains its importance, but isn't necessarily the center of the universe it once was. The authors examine the arguments for exposing kids to the world outside their immediate experience and give tons of practical advice on how to do it. This is a must read for parents who want to do well by their kids and prepare them for international success.

Raising Global Children is a must read for every parent who wants to give their child that edge in the global business world today. This book is a well thought out and informative guide which everyone can learn from. I especially enjoyed the personal quotes’ from a number of people on how gaining a more international knowledge of the world changed their lives as well as enhanced their business careers. I found it very informative and to the point. In brief, It's never to late to learn and grow. I highly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Today's world is both far bigger and far smaller than the world I grew up in. Bigger, because even little kids
have heard of places like China and India and Brazil - and NOT as places which are poor, so kids should clean
their plates in honor of the starving in. Smaller, because now more than ever, what happens in Beijing or
Brasilia is going to affect people growing up in Buffalo or Boise. This book helps parents and teachers help the
kids in their care grow up ready to meet and embrace the challenges of the big-little world they face. I hope and
believe that parents reading it will raise kids ready to be part of a positive re-engagement of America
with the rest of our changing and growing world.
