Check out this thread. Posters gave this mom a lot of world lit titles that might give you some ideas.




I'm taking some ideas from this thread. A couple others we'll read are KIte Runner by Khaled Houssini (Afghanistan), Persepolis 1 & 2 (Iran), & a bio on Mother Teresa (India).

Thanks, ladies. I had read a few books with him lat year and had a really cool list going. We stopped reading and I misplaced the list which I had put together from here!!!! So, I'll make a new list. It's such a broad and interesting topic.
