Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we...

...try and understand each other, we may even become friends.

I recently bought the Eboo map of the world for Isaiah and Owen. It has been awesome! Isaiah has really taken to it. He is especially curious about the animals that live in different areas of the world. He loves Katy No Pocket and likes to read it over and over next to the map so he can see Australia. The map came with a large key that names the animals, buildings, etc. that can be found on the map. He studies the key and then searches the map for the animal of interest. We just bought a child's encyclopedia of animals and it will be so much fun for him to identify where each animal lives on the map!

I look forward to traveling with my boys and am so excited that they are already developing such a thirst for information about the world.
