Your book lists are amazing! I wish I’d found you long ago, especially when I was teaching. One set of books I loved for kids was the ‘Look What Came From’ series. Most of the other books I used are on your list. I also had several books that I used to introduce the concept of the similarities and differences in the world such as ‘On the Same Day in March’ and ‘This is the Way We Go to School’. If you would like other titles like that, just let me know. Thanks for your great lists!
