More than ever, children need to realize worlds beyond their own, including some very different from their own. Even more important, they should recognize that the people living in these lands aren't really so different after all. Written by native authors and filled with engaging details, A Child's Day takes young readers on a journey where they follow one child throughout the course of the day to learn about the child's family and friends, culture and language, school and play. An astounding amount of information is woven through the deceptively simple narratives. Numerous, original photographs featured in each volume as well as key facts about each country will further aid young readers in appreciating other cultures.
