I work in our children’s mission education program and The Marvelous Mud House is a perfect resource. The book not only is beautifully illustrated but helps children (and adults) look beyond themselves to a world that may be completely different than the one in which they live. I am always looking for opportunities to connect the children to other cultures and I am excited to how a book to help me in that endeavor. There is a teaching/parent guide in the back of the book.
Even though this is an excellent book for mission education, it would be a great book for families to begin conversations about the needs of people around the world.
