Children of Many Lands


Children from thirty countries share all about their homes, families, the histories of their nation, and their own favorite things about their country.  Each week you’ll read about history as well as getting an overview of the geography of each country.  Then you’ll hear about the child’s home and loved ones, the traditions they enjoy with their families, what they do for fun and places they love in their own nation.
