About the Read the World Blog

Welcome to Read the World! As a child, I was a constant nuisance to the Forbes Library staff in my pursuit of finding books about a dog or a kid character who lived in a faraway country. As a writer, I still enjoy reading these kinds of books and decided to create this blog to help other like-minded readers find them too.

It is my hope that Read the World becomes a go-to-resource for booksellers, librarians, teachers, parents, and kids to find their next great read about a dog or kid character from a faraway country.

As you enter each sub-blog of Read the Wrold, you’ll find that I’ve indexed each post by the author’s name, as well as by the breed of dog or country featured to make it easier to target specific writers, dogs, or settings.

If you have a favorite book or have published one that falls within either category, I’d love to hear from you! Please contact me with the title and author’s name, and I’ll follow up!
