"Follow one day in the real lives of seven kids from around the world! This informative and fascinating illustrated book is perfect for learning how children live across the globe.

In Japan, Kei plays Freeze Tag, while in Uganda, Daphine likes to jump rope. While the way they play may differ, the shared rhythm of their days--and this one world we all share--unites them.

 

From Italy, Japan, Iran, and India to Peru, Uganda, and Russia, author Matt Lamonthe transports readers across the globe and back with this luminous and thoughtful picture book. Getting a glimpse into everyday routines across the culture map provides a window into traditions that may be different from our own as well as mirrors reflecting our common experiences.

 

GEOGRAPHY FOR KIDS: Children who love learning about new cultures and customs will find a world of fascination in these pages. From food to sports to daily chores, this wonderful nonfiction book for kids features delightful illustrations that are accompanied, in a final section, by photographs of the featured children with their families.

 

THE WAY THINGS WORK: Inspired by his own travels, author-illustrator Matt Lamonthe created this entertaining resource to educate children on the importance of similarities and differences, and to give them a unique look into the lives and everyday routines of other kids on earth.

 

ORDINARY PEOPLE CHANGE THE WORLD: A little history of the world shows us that the importance of interconnectedness cannot be underestimated. This book is a treasure that combines the best of children's picture books with a taste of cultural studies sized just right for young readers."
