If the World Were a Village... if_the_world_were_a_village.jpg
First published to wide acclaim in 2002, this eye-opening book has since become a classic, promoting "world-mindedness" by imagining the world's population -- all 6.8 billion of us -- as a village of just 100 people.
Now, If the World Were a Village has been newly revised with updated statistics, several new activities and completely new material on food security, energy and health. By exploring the lives of the 100 villagers, children will discover that life in other nations is often very different from their own. The statistics — some surprising, some shocking — and insights on food and water, religion, possessions, literacy and more will encourage readers to embrace the bigger picture.
If the World Were a Village is part of CitizenKid: A collection of books that inform children about the world and inspire them to be better global citizens.
