This highly informative book will get kids thinking and asking questions.
It’s an eye-opener for all.
These days, the world seems to be getting smaller. This timely, unique book enhances that sentiment. It is useful for a current understanding of the world’s population.
Thought-provoking and highly effective, this world-in-miniature will open eyes to a wider view of our planet and its human inhabitants.
This amazing book could be used in many different ways across the curriculum. Each chapter (on topics such as population, food and schooling) is accompanied by bright, folksy illustrations that make this global village look like a lively and interesting place. Includes a section on teaching children about the global village.
Unique format shrinks the world’s population down to 100 and presents who we are, where we live, how fast we are growing, what languages we speak and more.
