“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” – Mark Twain
Seymour & Hau’s Book Review
This is the thought provoking quote on the first page of the amazing book by artists Melanie Morse & Thomas McDade, who have written is series about a boy and his alien friend traveling the world to help kids.
And since we cannot travel the world ourselves, we are lucky that these amazing authors have chosen this new take on adventure books to share their perspectives of their travels though these fun stories. The stories were read by my 7 year old son and he thoroughly loved them.
The books bring a unique perspective on each country that the duo, this smart, kind, boy Seymour and his alien friend Hau (who has magic pouch that comes very handy) visit. This beautifully illustrated book is great for kids aged 6 – 10 yrs. The book’s unique quality is that it teaches kids a little about the country first and then the story begins showing you a lot about the culture and the story takes you on an adventurous, fun journey giving you a look into a new city.
And that is all what Raising World Children stands for …
Teaching kids about the world, empowering them to be more than they can be while teaching them that diversity is important for fighting all that’s wrong with the world today.
One Year Ago, The Birth of Raising World Children
With a germ of an idea for bringing parents enlightening new perspectives from around the world, the RWC family has together through video, art, stories and guides have for a year striven to break barriers.
Every parent today struggles to find the balance in today’s trending cultures with their own heritage in a world that is multicultural. Everything on RWC is so that parents can read and share with their kids a little about a world they may know nothing about or help them in empowering their kids to be global thought leaders. From our launch to reaching 1000 – 2000 people daily, being featured on NBC12 news, we have today reached a total of 200,000+ people till today. That’s astounding for a publication that only runs on the time that people are willing to put into into it, sharing their very real stories.
This journey has been most meaningful when people reach out to our writers appreciating them or asking them for more advice. Or our writers get recognized around the world for their write ups. Or when we have parents join our Facebook group to stay better connected to us. Or when a mom says, how much she loves our work and is telling all her friends about it. Or when parents send in their’s children’s art/writing to be published.
Today we share with your a round up of our BEST posts all year long. While EVERY story has found resonance with people, the below are the ones that people keep coming back to.
