This study is designed to be an introductory course to world cultures and geography for the primary grade student through delightful children's picture books. Along with award-winning literature, this course includes nature study, folktales, fables, music, art, poetry, and history. Gentle Socratic questions are designed to prompt discussion and discovery. Geographic elements include country maps and flags for students to cut out, paint or color, encouraging journaling of all the student is learning.

Each country visited features a selection of animals indigenous to those regions. These beautiful drawings will familiarize students with some remarkable creatures, their habitat and habits, cultivating respect and wonder for the natural world. Part One covers Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica. In Asia we explore China, Japan, Thailand, and India. In Africa we visit Morocco, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ghana. Each country visited also includes a Library Connection, as well as History and Biography suggestions, so that teachers can expand the study with additional recommendations. Each chapter concludes with a fun foray into the cuisine of the country with recipes, photos, and links to create a memorable evening visiting unique culinary creations from around the world.

Study features 70 lessons and can be used in one semester or one year depending on pace. Complete 4 lessons per week for a semester study or 2 lessons per week for a year-long study.

I like Beautiful Feet Books products. I hope to use this in a homeschool co-op setting.
Phoebe T on May 1, 2019
I wanted to use the Beautiful Feet Around the World With Picture Books (Part 1) curriculum, but didn't need all the picture books, so I ordered the guide and the large Maps book, which together are the spine of the box, so to speak. I am buying some of the picture books used, as well as borrowing some of them from our local library.

I love Beautiful Feet Book products! I was able to visit their warehouse in SLO and was so impressed by their product knowledge and how accommodating and kind they were. Thankful for an opportunity to support a family run business!

If teaching to a co-op, what materials would each child need? Just a notebook, pencils and crayons?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that would work totally fine, but Beautiful Feet recommends the Tsubame notebook (a high-quality paper notebook that runs about $6), watercolor paints, and rubber cement for gluing pictures. Also, check out the Teacher Resources section of Beautiful Feet site--there are free pdf files of the coloring pages that are included in the back of the book.
How long does a lesson take? Have they been of consistent times or are some longer than others?
Karah E on Jul 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The length of lessons does vary a bit, but most of the lessons involving reading are similar in length (15-20 minutes). The overall time depends on whether you do the optional activities. I found the lessons to be very flexible and I easily adjusted them to what we we wanted to do that day. Think of the Teacher’s Guide more as suggestions than prescribed lessons.
what are the books used and are they included in Around he world with Picture Books?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The books are not included with the purchase of the Study Guide but are available as separate purchases.

Wonderful
I used this as a supplement to My Father's World exploring Countries and Cultures. It added great ideas and books that my young and older kids loved. I'd highly recommend it. The picture book recommendations are great.
February 13, 2019
Somewhat disappointed. I was looking for a geography supplement, but this is more of a unit study guide. First week it calls to use Anno's China for Chinese country study & it looks to be rather integral to lesson plans, but unavailable through library or used and is an extra $20. Also heavy on art connection.
