Cultural/Human Geography Living Books

Recommended Posts


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).
