Product Details

Praise

Growing up Global offers fascinating ideas for giving young people opportunities to become truly global citizens. Learning about the customs and culture of others around the globe enriches our lives so much and can only lead to better understanding and cooperation for generations to come.”—Jane Goodall PhD, DBE, Founder, The Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace

Growing up Global is for every family on the planet, bar none. Tavangar’s stellar ideas for deepening children’s understanding of—and comfort with—every culture is a must in today’s increasingly borderless world. But Tavangar’s tips aren’t just about imbuing children with the multicultural competence they need to succeed in today’s cultural blender; unwittingly or not, she’s also provided a road map for connecting more deeply and joyfully with our kids as we uncover the world’s smorgasbord of art, movies, books, games, sports, foods, religions (and dispel antiquated stereotypes) on our journey to discovery. This book is a two for one.—Donna Jackson Nakazawa, author, Does Anybody Else Look Like Me: A Parent’s Guide to Raising Multiracial Children

Growing Up Global is an intelligent, thoughtful guide for developing a global orientation in children. The chapter on school experiences around the world was particularly relevant, and I found the service and giving chapter inspirational. This is an encouraging book for a multicultural world!”—Terri Morrison, co-author, Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands: The Bestselling Guide to Doing Business in More Than Sixty Countries


“The single greatest gift you can give your child today is to raise them with a global mind-set. If you read only one book this year about child rearing, make it Growing Up Global. It is relevant for today’s families, and long overdue.” —Perry Yeatman, author of Get Ahead by Going Abroad
