This book should be enjoyed in every elementary classroom!
In addition to the detailed artwork depicting how each child spends each part of his or her day, the book includes a photo of each child and their families, and a map to show where they live.
I like the author's note and biographical information at the end. He tells how he compiled the information for making the book, and he outlines his own day. He is almost another character, an inspiring one! Thanks, Matt, for the writing idea for my students!
Books like this are needed very much nowadays. This one follows the lives of a few children from around the world, showing that while we might eat different food or wear different clothing, a lot of what we do is the same, and also, we’re all people. We’re all humans. This is a great book to spark an interest in other cultures.

This book is perfect for helping young school aged children to discover how children around the world live. The main text is short and simple, so this book would work for age 5+ (especially if being read to).
Just when I thought that this was a wonderful work of fiction based on general facts, at the end of the book are photographs of the children from the book with their families. Wonderful stuff!
The children were not expected to read it themselves as it was read to the whole class.
Although based on the lives of real children and their families it would have been nice to see some more diverse families in this book. Perhaps next time...
