How to Build Your Own Country by Valerie Wyatt - OPTIONAL

Wyatt, Valerie How to Build Your Own Country, illustrated by Fred Rix. 39 p. Kids Can Press, 2009. 


This tongue-in-cheek book delivers some real-life facts about the nitty-gritty of building, running, growing and leading a country. 

Children might be entertained with the thought of setting up their own sovereign space. However, as a Geography teacher, I actually talked my students through the logistics of creating their own countries and we actually did this project as a culminating project. If I had had this book in hand, I wouldn’t have had to create a lot of things from scratch.
