Choosing books for this Bundle was a delight. The Global Babies series is one of my favorite all-time board books. While we own all of them at the library, I went with the original offering for this Bundle. I wanted to include a book that used language and Can You Say Peace? did so in a global setting. And Same, Same But Different is a great title that needs more recognition for sure.

The Barefoot Books “Children of the World” memory game focuses on the word hello in many languages, hooray!

Constructive Playthings Magnetic Global Children is a way for children to match different items with the children. The pieces are also swappable, so kids can blend the children to make a multicultural child. And the Constructive Playthings World Buildings are a great way to pack the world into a Bundle. (Though I do wish it was a bit less Europe-centric.)

This Bundle has gone out six times in the two months since its release.
