At school it is time to get serious. Children around the world read, write, have music lessons, write math problems on the board, work on their science projects and dabble in arts and crafts. Of course everyone seems to love recess and lunch. In the afternoon there's more learning to do and then "kids stand up, clean up and head for home any way they can." Some children aren't done when school is out. They have to work, play, do homework, finish chores and then think . . . about "what's for dinner?" Of course everyone has something that's a bit different than the next person. When the sun sets it's time for family and then time to get to bed. Sleep well, for the next day will come soon!
This is a beautiful pictorial book that captures the daily lives of children around the world. Despite their differences, on some level they are all alike. As the author states, "Kids go to school, they play, they spend time with their families. This book represents one day, from sunrise to sunset, around the world-a day we share together." The photographs are stunning and very appealing.Read more ›
To actually see how children around the globe spend their day--just amazing. it will make the American youngster sit up and take an interest, that's for sure.
I love this book.
Based on the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies, this book is notable because it teaches children about culture, which is number one on the standards list. Culture is something that every single child needs to appreciate, value, and know about. This does not mean solely their own culture but branching out and discovering all about many different cultures from around the globe. This standard can be taught and presented to students by reading this truly beautiful book with the students. After reading, the students could create their own little book of pictures and compare it to pictures from other cultures in the book. Also, students could write many essays or prompts about what they see in the book. Any of these activities would promote the value of culture in Social Studies.
Another standard from NCSS that can be developed by reading this book is number nine, global connections.Read more ›
This book with its divergent compilation of photographs and minimal text is a great read-a-loud even with the youngest of children, yet also provides in the appendix additional information about each photo for the curious child or adult. Each reference has a thumbnail photo as well as a page number reference (which is great since the book has no page numbers?) There is also a world map giving the locale of each photograph.
