The pages are nice and thick and glossy.

This book shares stories from a child point of view of what their life is like and also gives you tips on how to pray specific for that country/area.
Chrissy Townsend
This book is opening my eyes to the knowledge that EVERY person is a child of God and He loves and cares about each one.

The book features a different country on every 2 page spread. The pages are nice and thick and glossy. Great color all over with lots of photographs. Beautiful layout.

Each country is briefly desribed with the geography, culture, relative dynamics and, most importantly, how you can pray for that nation. A must-have book in your library.

Homeschool curriculum companies that use this book are SONLIGHT and MY FATHER'S WORLD.

I highly recommend this book to any christian- children and adults will enjoy it!

(PS: the man that reviewed the 'book binding' above clearly received a defective book and should have returned it)

I just ordered this book for my wife for Christmas as a companion to Operation World. The content adds a more personal touch to the information in Operation World by allowing you to visualize some of the people and their culture. The only negative part was that the book was bound upside down and backwards. If you opened the book based on the direction of the cover you were looking at the end of the book upside down. Not really a big deal but a little annoying.

This book has been on our Homeschool boockcase for the last two years. It is by far one of the favorites in our home. My son (10 years old) can tell us all about the beliefs of a people group without even opening the book. He will also pick a people group and make up his own stories and write them out. We bought this to use along with our prayer journal and devotions for our homeschool but it has been used for so much more. We now have Operation World by the same authors and are looking forward to exploring that next year.

Format: Hardcover
This book is life-changing. It is my 8 year old daughters favorite part of the school day, but I am learning as much, if not more, than she is from it. I am learning that the world is much larger than my city, my state, the US and even North America! There is a lot going on out there that I have been horribly blind to until now. This book is opening my eyes to the knowledge that EVERY person is a child of God and He loves and cares about each one. This book is causing me to have a new perspective of thankfulness about how fortunate my family is and daily I am reminded to be thankful for our health, our safety, our comfort and material provision, our food, clean water, all things I have taken for granted until now. We are very spoiled in this country and I think this book is an awesome tool for adults and children to foster a new way of thinking!

Format: Paperback
I am an Orthodox Christian and a homeschool parent. I am highly offended by the way this book represents the first Christian Church. This was very tacky. The author should have given a better representation of the church that her church was founded from. There are instances with people from all walks of life that can be negative. The story represented in this book is not a true representation of the Orthodox faith. I was using this book to teach my children in the homeschool environment, until I saw what was written about our faith. I will no longer be using this book. If my faith is so misrepresented, what other lies are in this book?

The quick summary:
*One star for the maps, facts and figures offered on the countries
*One star for lots of colorful, interesting pictures
*Minus one star for judgmental attitude
*Minus one star for contrived stories
*Minus one star for inaccuracies on China section

Narrow-minded
I was so excited about this book! I started out reading this to my children, and liked exposing them to different peoples and cultures. But the more I read, the less I liked. The prayer suggestions bothered me the most. The authors are extremely narrow in their focus. Why can we only be grateful when people are exposed to or converted to their particular brand of Christianity? Can we not be grateful that a country/people is God-fearing? that they pray? that they are kind? that they have strong families? that they have enough to eat??? And can we only pray for people to be converted? For a war-torn poverty-stricken country, I think I would first pray for safety and food, and THEN maybe for a Bible to be translated into their own language. (Safety, food, shelter and other things that might be life-altering for impoverished peoples are never mentioned by the authors at all.) A Bible in their own language will mean a lot more to them if they are alive to read it! I know this is a Christian book, but it seems very unchristian, judgmental, and narrow-minded at times. I did NOT want my children picking up on that kind of attitude, so I stopped reading the prayer suggestions altogether.

Contrived Stories.
Every story sounded the same. Every story was written in exactly the same style. Every story was about being converted. Every story seemed completely false. The book felt just like this paragraph--like I was reading the same story over and over.

Format: Paperback
We received this book as part of our 2nd grade Christian homeschool curriculum. The good part about this book is that it shows the county on the map and gives a few facts about the country ( major export, major religion, language etc.). The bad thing about this book is that for each country, it gives a story of how a missionary came in and saved the day. Some of these stories seem far fetched and made up, not believable. I'd like more facts about the country and it's people.
