5 Picture Books for TCKs

I'm always on the look out for picture books that promote multiculturalism, flexibility, and security--the three things that my little TCKs face as they move between countries, languages, and people groups. Here are 5 that I love and recommend, and I hope to add more and more to this list (and other book lists) in the near future.

1. We're Different, We're the Same 
written by Bobbi Kates
illustrated by Joe Mathieu

2. All the World
written by Liz Garton Scanlon
illustrated by Marla Frazee

3. Alexander, Who’s Not (Do You Hear Me? I Mean It!) Going to Move 
written by Judith Viorst
illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser

4. Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon
written by Patty Lovell
illustrated by David Catrow

5. Malia in Hawaii
written by Karyn Hopper
illustrated by Tammy Yee
{No, this book isn't about me. ^.^ It's actually about celebrating four different cultures all present in one little girl.}

Abide in Him,
