    "What Does It Mean To Be Global" is an excellent resource for parents and teachers. It uses and easy question and answer format to introduce the concept of global community, then goes on to provide practical ways for each of us, adult or child, to truly live in a globally aware manner. The illustrations are simply and bright, adding value to an already wonderful book. My children enjoy explaining the concepts in this book to their friends and family.
