Inspirational Fiction for Kids

Our lists of recommended fiction are wonderful reads that either inspire love of nature, or love of travel, or love of world cultures, or the arts.  They include heart-warming stories of children who cross cultures and bridge cultures, care for gardens and animals, and discover wonders, wherever in the world they happen to be.  They also include animal tales that accurately illustrate the ways of the natural world, and human tales that illustrate the real-world experience of people of very different cultures.

The use of language is beautiful in all of these books, and the illustrations are also wonders to behold.  We hope you enjoy them as much as we have!
