Here it is – the full book list for the FREE monthly Global Children’s Book Club for 2022. This year, I structured the countries I chose around important holidays celebrated there each month. The picture books generally correlate with the holiday, while the chapter book connects more generally to the place or peoples.

We’re really looking forward to reading these diverse multicultural children’s books from around the world. We hope you join in!

You can find all the details about the program at the link below, and you can also click through to download your own printable passport to go along with the 2022 countries & books!
