"I appreciate the idea behind this book, but I had several issues with it. There was no reference to any studies or articles by experts in the field. This simply felt like a blogger copied and pasted her blog posts into one document and called it a book. Rather than saying "we do this and this and it's the right way," I wish she would have presented bits of research and WHY it helps raise globally-minded children and then given examples, including hers, of how to implement it in our lives."
