Editorial Reviews

More Families of Mexico introduces two children from two different families, one urban and the other rural. View the unique lives of two children and their families from breakfast to bedtime and all the fun-filled activities in between. It shows young viewers the amazing similarities between their own lives and those of children the same age living thousands of miles away: similar chores, school and extra-curricular activities and family interactions. It is part of the highly acclaimed Families of the World series which broadcast on PBS.

In More Families of Mexico meet 8-year-old Guadalupe, who lives with her parents and sister next door to her grandparents near the top of a small mountain in the state of Veracruz. The whole village, surrounded by coffee trees, is built on land that used to be part of a large hacienda. Her weekday consists of school where she studies history and enjoys recess and snacks sold by parents to help raise money for supplies. Students then take turns cleaning the schoolyard. After classes, she accompanies her mother to the local market, church and hacienda before heading home for supper, picture bingo and computer games.
Maurice is a 12-year old boy who lives in the city of Jalapa, the capital of the state of Veracruz on the Gulf of Mexico. He attends private school along with his younger sister Carolina while his father works as a store auditor and his mother tends to the home. After a daily flag ceremony celebrating his country, it is off to study his favorite subject, English, and computer class. After school, Maurice takes karate, then does his homework before bed. Because he has a cough, the next day, Saturday, has Maurice off to see the doctor, then to the dentist to get his braces adjusted. On Sunday, he plays with his electric car before heading to church, where he helps collect donations. Afterward, he enjoys a birthday party, complete with two piñatas, then home to get to bed early for school the next day.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer Bogart on September 27, 2009
When Families of Mexico was released in 2006 (Families of the World series) the positive response was great enough to warrant a second disc that follows the daily lives of Mexican children and their families, resulting in this month's release More Families of Mexico. No familiarity with the first disc is required to enjoy this new release, as each episode stands alone.

Very enjoyable, your children will get a great taste of Mexican culture, geography, lifestyle, and more.

For full details regarding the latest three releases in the Families of the World series of DVDs (Guatemala, Panama, and More Mexico), please see my review of Families of Guatemala.
