    2. I enjoyed this book purely because of how it related to children everywhere I am a firm believer that if you are trying to get kids to understand a concept about anything it needs to be interactive and engaging Students respond much better to things they are familiar with If they have a correct understanding of the basic concept you as the teacher are then able to take that and connect it to other things Relating the different children and their routines is a great example of this process If I w [...]

    3.

    6. My 6 year old son could not put this book down for two weeks Every night at bedtime, this is the book he d choose to go over and over again He really enjoyed getting to know the children from several countries and appreciate their differences Aside from showing a brief overview of how the children days go by, it shows a little about their diets as well I wrote a very brief review in my blog raisingaselfreliantchild.c Two thumbs up for keeping a child engaged

    8. This book follows 8 children in California, England, Brazil, Ghana, Russia, Vietnam, Australia, and India as they go about their day, from waking up in the morning, going to school, playing and doing chores, to going to bed What I found most interesting was the various types of beds that everyone slept on, and the different ways they ate their meals.A great book for multicultural studies
