Meet Backpack! In each issue, Backpack visits a country and learns about some of its history and culture. If you love discovering new places and people, you’ll have a great time traveling with him. But there’s a catch! Backpack won’t tell you where he is — you have to guess! You’ll get photos and clues about where he is by reading about Backpack’s adventures. Guess where he visited and send us your answer on social media!
Ready to Mark
The checklist pages are a way for you to work on good habits and new skills in your daily life.

Diary of Layla
Layla is a nine-year-old Muslim American girl living in New York. She’s got a furry cat, lots of cousins, and a plan to record her life in her journal. Her parents are from Pakistan and Egypt, which means she gets to love and learn about two different cultures. Follow Layla as she writes about her daily life (and some adventures!) in these diary pages.
