By far though, our favorite part is the list of suggested prayers for each people group or country. Since the school year started, our family has been able to pray for people all over the world, some of which we didn't even know existed before we read this book. My four year old still often prays for the "kids who live in the sewers" as those pages particularly touched his heart.
Be warned that this book may spark some hard discussions with your children. My kids have asked many questions: easy ones about what different religions believe (the back of the book has a great resource for describing the main religions of the world)and really hard ones like "Why would that person's family kill them if they became a Christian?" or "How can we help kids who live in the sewer?"
The only issue I have is that the edition I have is about 10 years old, and as with any geography book, some things have changed in that time. When we covered Iraq, for example, the had listed Saddam Huessien as the leader of the country. It wasn't a huge deal for me, because I knew enough about that country to update the kids.
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)
