Summer Map Update 2

The children started this map as their summer project.
 It was inspired by the book My Family and Other Animals
by Gerald Durrell. You can read more about it here.

Despite play dates, sleepovers, judo, family day trips
and a current (incredible) visit from their grandparents,
they are making progress. Starting with Australia, they
are learning about the lakes and rivers, coral reefs, 
climate, plants and animals and the beautiful people and
their customs, languages and religion.

In short, it is fascinating.

Gerald Durrell - you were a genius.
And you have inspired our family to love 
learning about our world.

Of course, this was made possible by the library.
Who will inspire your family today?

xoxo Michele
