Foreign to Familiar: A Guide to Understanding Hot- and Cold-Climate Cultures
August 27, 2014
Another homeschool missionary mom told me about this book and I think it will be very helpful in teaching World Cultures this year. It is also helpful in relating to the different personalities in my family!
Everyone who has friends from a different culture, or especially if you are planning a missions trip to a warm culture climate when you live in a cold one (or vice versa), should read this book first. It helps us to understand the differences so that we can have a more positive relationship with those of different cultures.
This book has opened my eyes in an amazing way! I feel far more prepared to understand and interact with people from another culture. This book showed me that culture goes far deeper than clothing and food - it is a different way of thinking and relating!
