If the World were a Village
Using a 'world-in-miniature' approach this book opens our eyes to a wider view of our planet and its human inhabitants, telling us who we are, where we live, how fast we are growing, which languages we speak, which religions we practise and more.
At this moment, there are more than 7 billion people on the planet! It's hard to picture so many people at one time - but what if we imagine the whole world as a village of just 100 people?
In this village: 21 people speak a Chinese dialect, 10 earn less than two dollars a day, 14 cannot read or write, 45 have a television in their homes, 47 do not always have enough to eat.
There are several activities that will stimulate discussion and show children and families how they can become more world-minded in this multi-award-winning and international bestselling book.
