Kids Can Build Bridges takes kids on an imaginary journey around the world. As they meet people who live in other places, they'll discover that people everywhere have similarities and differences, and be inspired by the many ways in which people worship God. Stories, games, food, and activities from around the world will help kids understand that God loves everyone.
