My Book Review
GENRE: Travel, How To Book
Point of View: 16 families contribute in first person, and share their experiences moving to a foreign country with children. The book centers around one family, the Haines family who moved from small town in Canada to Ecuador, and Dena writes about the problems and obstacles to overcome while moving your family.
But the book covers more than that, it shares a commonality among the contributors about the benefits of this alternative parenting style, and while all families have very different lives , income levels and locations; the all believe that sharing a new language, and new cultures with their children have long term benefits. You can feel the excitement when you read the book. There are glimpses inside these families minds, they all felt that they were doing something very special for their families, a unique experience that would in fact change their families forever. Even through the hard moments, they stayed focused to what they wanted.
Being a contributor to this book myself, I feel, it doesn’t matter your destination, it truly is the journey. The benefits of learning new culture’s traditions and language open people to acceptance and understanding.
This is a Non-Fiction work set in a formal style intended to inform others wishing to try this lifestyle. It is in fact a handbook, but there are many resource links to the individual blogs for you to get more information if you are travelling or planning to move to one of the different locations.
Obstacles are clearly defined, and solution presented with the back up support from the other families.
The information is this book seems accurate, and informative. The layout of the book is easy to follow, and easy to cross reference. I enjoyed reading the different entries from the 16 different families that contributed.
I have been blogging since 2011, and am a Canadian expat living in the southern region of France near the Mediterranean Sea. I have met thousands of visitors to our regions, and dozens have followed our path here. Having a handbook with the biggest problems with solutions could have made our move far easier. The handbook gives clear solution to the most common problems that arise when moving to a new country.
If you are thinking about moving, this is exactly the book to buy.
