CHILDREN JUST LIKE ME KIDS AROUND THE WORLD

 

IF THE WORLD WERE A VILLAGE: A Book About the World's People, David J. Smith, Shelagh Armstrong (Illustrator)

There are currently more than six billion people on the planet! This enormous number can be difficult to grasp. But what if we imagine the whole world as a village of just 100 people?

In this village:

* 22 people speak a Chinese dialect
* 20 earn less than a dollar a day
* 32 are of Christian faith
* 17 cannot read or write
* 39 are under 19 years old

In a time when parents and educators are looking to help children gain a better understanding of the world's peoples and their ways of life, If the World Were a Village offers a unique and objective resource. By exploring the lives of the 100 villagers, children will discover that life in other nations is often very different from their own. The shrunk-down statistics - some surprising, some shocking - and Smith's tips on building "world-mindedness" will encourage readers to embrace the bigger picture and help them to establish their own place in the global village.

Ages 9-12

THE WORLD TURNS ROUND AND ROUND, Nicki Weiss

A classroom of students traces their cultural backgrounds to points all over the globe. Each student has received a wearable gift from a faraway relative -- a reminder that each of us is part of something much bigger, the global village. Weiss invites young armchair travellers to explore the world, trace their own family roots, and start multicultural treasure hunts for dashikis, sombreros, cowboy boots, and whatever else they may discover once they start asking questions and sharing stories. Also featured is a glossary of the international terms used in the text and postage stamps from each of the countries mentioned.
