People Around the World is the book that everyone will want to read. It gives a truly global perspective on the kaleidoscope of peoples and cultures that make up our world. Divided into eight chapters - Arctic and Subarctic, Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Western and Southern Asia, Eastern Asia, Australia and the Pacific - each chapter will be broken down into smaller sections (e.g. Northern Africa, Eastern Africa, Central Africa, Western Africa and Southern Africa). This fascinating book takes the reader on a journey through all the continents of the world, stopping off along the way to meet the people, and especially the children, who live in the different countries. There are particular features on clothing, traditions, ceremonies, religion, language, education, food and employment. People Around the World uses superb, evocative photographs of adults and children to illustrate their everyday lives. By examining the lives of children and adults, People Around the World cultivates a global perspective on the people and cultures that make up our planet.
By ensuring both the text and the photographs focus primarily on children, this book really demonstrates just what life is like for different children everywhere. A reference section at the end of each chapter will provide information about all the countries in that chapter including capital city, area in square kilometres, population, population density, life expectancy, religions, languages, adult literacy rate and currency.show more
