Why is it called Red Square?

Ben Franklin said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” These stories have a way of whisking your child away to a place not yet experienced or even imagined. Reading these stories allows your child’s imagination to fly...even through a sock with a friendly fox in the Into the Sock with Philip Fox series by Rosemary High. In A Trip to London, our fox friend Philip takes readers on a tour of London, England in a truly unique way. Through the magic of his sock, we experience the beauty of London from high atop the London Eye, the hustle and bustle of the streets, the contemplative quiet of St. Paul’s Cathedral, and much more. These imaginative experiences can transfer from the book into your child’s small world play, which is wonderful for building language skills!

Learning about and celebrating global diversity can make a lifelong impact on a child. Global awareness and compassion can begin at an early age - using fun, creative books like these that your child will love!
