Thank you so much for putting these together and sharing them! My boys really love your playlists. I noticed that the link for A Child’s View of Bolivia isn’t working anymore. Any suggestions for something to replace it? What particular part of childhood in Bolivia did it cover?
Thanks you! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the playlists 🙂 Glad you caught that. I went ahead and removed the link. The video was a day-in-the-life of a child living in poverty in Bolivia. It was heartbreaking for me to watch, but my son loved the upbeat little boy and seeing all the things he did in a day – working, going to school, and playing with his brother. It was an interesting peek into life in Bolivia.
