I loved reading this book with my 7 year old. It shows images of children and their families doing chores, eating meals, and playing together from all over the world. This is a great book to share with your child to help them learn how different AND similar other cultures are. Highly recommended!

Pictures of daily life for kids around the world, including chores such as vacuuming.

The author actually contacted families in each country, asked them for pictures of the members of the family, their home, school, food and so forth. Then he based his illustrations and text on the pictures as well as conversations that he had with the families. The book can be approached in two ways (and probably more). You could read it as the book is laid out by activity or you could read each country skipping from activity to activity. There is also a glossary, so you can read a description of food dishes or terms that appear in the text. The illustrations are cheerful and show the child in the context of school or play or whatever the activity might be, so that you get a feeling for the people and the way they go about their lives. The countries chosen are in very different continents, climates and socio-economic settings. This is a great book to share with your family or classroom.

I really enjoyed reading this with my kids. The only thing that was a little annoying was how they kept moving where the countries were placed so my kids had a hard time remembering which country it was.

Beautiful illustration, good book for young kids to see diversity in the world.

What a lovely nonfiction picture book! It is lengthy, so it isn't necessarily meant to be read aloud in one sitting. The author notes sum up this one perfectly. Matt Lamothe writes "I hope to surprise readers with similarities between us, as well as teach readers about the things we do completely differently". A job well done!
