Description

With our 24/7 news cycle and constant access to the latest headlines, the world can be a scary place. Now imagine you're a child trying to make sense of it all!

That's where books from the Children in Our World series can help. Each book uses relatable comparisons, carefully researched text, and striking illustrations to help kids understand the many difficulties that children just like them face in the world today. In Global Conflict, children can get answers to questions like: what is global conflict? And how does it affect people in countries all over the world? Children will begin to understand the way others struggle with these issues and discover ways they can help. Award-winning illustrator Hanane Kai uses a deft hand to create powerful illustrations that help children visualize the people impacted by poverty, hunger, war, racism, and more. All of the images are sensitively rendered and perfectly suited for younger children. These books are an excellent cross-curricular resource--use them to explore important issues and tie them into discussions about food, wealth, compassion, empathy, and current affairs.

Review quote

"Children are often full of questions about the world, but sometimes the answers can be complicated or troubling. Titles in the Children in Our World series aim to help little ones grasp some of these complex issues by offering gentle explanations, which are further softened by amiable illustrations of round-faced kids. Spilsbury does a nice job of discouraging fear; rather, she encourages kids to rely on people trained to help and seek out common ground with others who might seem different. The soft artwork and accessible, age-appropriate language make this well suited to curious kids in the picture-book set."
