It has answered prayers since the first edition. I also like that there are spots for general groups, such as missionary kids. So many people groups in this book we have never heard of. It is good to get a glimpse of how big the world is when our kids (and us) can be stuck in our small world right in front of us. It's good to see the big picture, other people and what their life is like. Not everyone has the problem of not having the next and newest technology or a brand new pair of shoes.
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.
Just wish there were an updated version of this inspiring book!
