Synopsis: "33 Things to Explain the World" offers conversation starters for fun and meaningful family time. Familiar, everyday objects help parents discuss topics like Atmosphere (Apple Peel), Biodiversity (Honey), Agriculture (Perfume), Art (Urinal), Moral Values (Mirror) or Dignity (Camera).

The goal of the book is to show children how everything in the world has relevance for them and how all the things are interrelated. All articles use a "thing" as a hook to start the conversation. The description of the object shows that there is always more beneath the surface than what is immediately obvious. Questions, interesting facts and a graphic at the end of each article let children reflect about how one object is connected to another and initiate discussions about how the world works.

Children of the 21st century live in a "global village", one in which
the interrelations of things, or cause-and-effect, are increasingly
important, as is the ability to comprehend them. With 33 Things to Explain the World parents can show their child "what is in it for me " and why a topic is relevant for them on their road to become Global Citizens.

From the Author: How can we talk to our kids about the ever-changing world that we live in? How can we instill a deep respect for our wonderful Earth and the achievements of both the living and those who have come before us? How can we foster our children's innate curiosity and desire to learn? How do we create meaningful conversations in our families and open communication in our relationships?

These are the kinds of questions that, as a mother, I ask myself regularly. I believe that talking with my children about any- and everything is one of my fundamental parenting tasks. And the challenge is to do it well.

This book is intended to show children - with the help of their parents - how to make connections and create knowledge from all the never ending information they come in contact with.  By focusing on the amazing things in our world, "33 Things to Explain the World to Kids" creates an opportunity to discuss specific topics as they relate to a child and the world and to give children a sense of how they are impacted by each of the ideas presented. And by discussing all of the "Things" with their parents I am hoping a sense of gratitude and respect grows in them.

My hope is to encourage parents to use everyday objects to initiate family conversations that help raise global citizen and create valuable and meaningful family time.
