Children enjoy learning about cultures that differ from what they are accustomed to. A Nations of Europe picture book opens the door to new experiences, and introduces children to new ideas and concepts through learning about the differences and commonalities between nations. Exposing children to other customs, languages, types of government, and landscapes broadens their horizons and increases their open-mindedness. A picture book can be used as a gateway vehicle to enhancing a child's international education and provide a foundation for acceptance and tolerance of other cultures. A Nations of Europe book can help children understand a portion of the world apart from our own nation.
