Are you looking to add more diverse books to your bookshelves, or to your library stack? Why not look beyond your country’s borders to see what children around the world are reading?
Each week my daughters (age 4.5 and 2.5) and I are reading as many picture books as we can find from a different country. So far, in 2021, we have read books from 20 countries, and are excited for all the countries we have left. We have discovered so many amazing books we never would have read before starting this project.
We love getting recommendations for can’t miss picture books from around the world, so please share the great ones you know about! Stop back here each week, or follow us on Instagram @kidsreadtheworld to see what we’re reading.

Hi, I’m Lori, a U.S. based mother of two girls (4 years old, and 2 years old), a wife, a special education teacher in a public school, and a picture book lover for as long as I can remember. While we are homebound for now, I still want to give my girls a taste of all the things this big wide world has to offer, to broaden their hearts and minds in the best way I know how.
Let’s hang out! You can find me at:
