Presented in conjunction with UNICEF, DK's A Life Like Mine: How Children Live Around the World profiles 18 children and explores what life is like for them and other young people, spanning 180 countries. Organized into four sections-Survival, Development, Protection and Participation-the handsomely designed volume, with a bounty of photographs that transport readers to exotic lands, stems from the mission set forth by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Charts, maps and children's quotes add to the thoughtful and informative presentation.
