If the World Were a Village
David J. Smith
Price: $ 15.95

There are currently more than six billion people on the planet! This enormous number can be difficult to grasp, especially for a child. But what if we imagine the whole world as a village of just 100 people?

In this village
22 people speak a Chinese dialect
20 earn less than a dollar a day
32 are of Christian faith
17 cannot read or write
39 are under 19 years old

In a time when parents and educators are looking to help children gain a better understanding of the world¿s peoples and their ways of life, If the World Were a Village offers a unique and objective resource. By exploring the lives of the 100 villagers, children will discover that life in other nations is often very different from their own. The shrunk-down statistics ¿ some surprising, some shocking ¿ and David Smith¿s tips on building ¿world-mindedness¿ will encourage readers to embrace the bigger picture and help them to establish their own place in the global village.
