Format: Hardcover
This is a spectacular masterpiece from UNICEF. It not only shows life for 18 or so children from different parts of the world but give invaluable information about what children need to survive and what people are doing to ensure that all children get these needs fulfilled. The whole book is divided into 4 main chapters, Survival, Development, Protection and Participation. At the beginning of each of those chapters, is a definition of the word and basic ideas under those. E.g. Survial, definition, Water, Food, Home and Health.
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.

Children�s hopes and needs are the same around the globe even if the children speak different languages, experience different cultures and dress in various ways. This UNICEF book is a beautiful reflection of multicultural children and offers insights about parts of the world where basic children�s rights are not met.
This is a wonderful book for teaching global awareness and the necessity for community involvement...

Format: Paperback
Always looking for a book that will help children I teach to see beyond the small community in which they live, I found this book to contain facts and supporting photographs which had some impact on my elementary students. They find it hard to believe that other people live so differently. An excellent tool, and springboard for discussion.
