Thanks for putting this together!

Okay, this is scary. I haven't been reading posts because I'm so swamped with grading, and today I find you and I have written about the same thing! We must really be on the same wavelength!
Thanks for the great resources.

You're welcome.


Grace's post gave me the impetus to look for some websites with information that teachers could use this month--or any time of the year.

Hello Again,
Here's one more link for you. I generally point my students to the ALA page Growing Up Around the World, where they can download these PDF files:
Growing Up in Africa
Growing Up in the Americas
Growing Up in Asia and the Middle East
Growing Up in Australia and New Zealand
Growing Up in Europe

Given my upcoming trip, this is a timely celebration!
