Key Words: Children, Geography, Global, Culture
Fascinating stories will expand how young readers think of school, as they learn about the experiences of real children in thirteen different countries around the world. From Marta in Azezo, Ethiopia, and Luciano in Merida, Venezuela, to Alina in Taraz, Kazakhstan, and Lu in Shanghai, China, the children who are profiled live in places that truly span the globe. However, while there are huge differences in their environments, all the children share similar desires to learn, read and play with others. As with all the titles in the popular Around the World series, using a familiar concept such as going to school is a perfect way to introduce children to other cultures and places in social studies classes. A world map at the beginning of the book shows the location of each of the countries, and a glossary contains definitions of the foreign words.
Rating: 3 of 5 stars
A fun book that shows children all around the world going to school and what their school day looks like. They've even included homeschoolers!
