The world our children experience today has changed from the world of our childhood, and it is drastically different from that of their grandparents. Through economic globalization and continuing breakthroughs of mobile connectivity, the world our children live in is much smaller than previous generations could ever have imagined. Many of our children have the opportunity to personally or virtually relate and communicate to children from distant places on a daily basis. People from foreign lands are not as foreign as they once were.
In The Good Eggs Travel the World, your child will have the opportunity to travel with the Good Eggs as they embark on a journey to 10 countries. Through the adventures of the Good Eggs, your children will meet individuals, both children and adults, in distant lands who will share and teach about their cultures, customs, traditions, and everyday life. For most of us, our experience of others is on our own turf, within our own country. While reading The Good Eggs Travel the World, your child will get to imagine what it would be like to spend a year traveling, exploring, and experiencing the world and all it has to offer. Your child will benefit from learning the same historical, cultural, and relational lessons the Good Eggs learned while on their journey.
In the end, the Good Eggs learn that in light of our numerous differences, we are all very similar. We all share the same hopes and dreams for our world. As a result of their journey, the Good Eggs become ambassadors – individuals committed to making the world a better place. Their experiences have taught them the importance of going back to their hometown of Albumen to teach and serve others. They learn the importance of helping everyone they encounter to realize the diversity, beauty, and greatness of our world and our individual and collective roles in continually making our world a place of loving acceptance, appreciation, harmony and peace. Knowledge and experience are the keys to making this hope and dream a reality. Thank you for allowing your child to join the Good Eggs on their once-in-a-lifetime expedition. May your Good Egg forever become an ambassador of goodness.
