From Publishers Weekly
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.

Then each of those is investigated more deeply. Water is first, after the introduction we see how much water most of us in North America use and how much water some countries have to manage with. Also reasons why some places don't have enough (clean) water. Then it's the story of children in a few places and how and where they get water from. Then it's the personal story of one child, with water as it's main theme. This setup is continued throughout the book using topics such as food, health, development, education, playing, war, child labour, disabilities, feelings, religion, name, nationality and freedom of expression. This is an awe inspiring and humbling book that I recommened to all who work with children and all who care about children the world over.
This is a wonderful book for teaching global awareness and the necessity for community involvement...
