    I love Dorling Kindersley books, and this one is part of a series called "Children Just Like Me." All books in the series contain magnificent photographs of individual children from around the world, and we are told details about their lives. In this one, we are introduced to 43 youngsters from the Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia and Australasia as they go about their regular school day routines. Every page is colorful and beautifully laid out with DK's trademark photographs. I highly recommend every book in this series! – Jess O.

    This book covers as much about culture and daily life as it does the actual schools. It goes around the world, describing the interests and average day of a certain child native to each area. In all 40 different kids' stories are told. I like that for many countries (ex. Brazil and China) they cover kids from different areas to show the range of culture, socioeconomic status, etc. even within countries. Each page is packed with information. The writing style is a little tedious. I think adults would find this far more interesting than kids.

    Loved it. This is a book series that I just discovered. In this particular book, it gives you information about a where children learn. You get information about where children learn from several countries. So this book gives information from the Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australasia.I loved this book, the illustrations, just getting to know other people from other countries through this book!I would recommend it to 4th grade and up.

    As a future educator I really enjoyed this book. It was fascinating to see the differences in schools all over the world, and even within the US and Canada. This gave me a lot of perspective about our school system, even though this book was intended for students rather than teachers, I feel it gave me a lot of ideas about how to teach in different and appealing ways. It was also comforting to read that students have similar issues all over the world. Also it was really interesting to see the similarities and differences among school buildings, student dynamics, how religion plays a role in schooling, how the community/country plays a role in many aspects of schooling including the school day and who gets to go to school. I was surprised by how much I learned while reading this book. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about schools around the world. Also to any student who feels like they hate school, this book really made me feel grateful for the education I have and the opportunities it has given me.

    Theme: global, informational, similarities and differences in cultureAnother great informational book by UNICEF. Right away the bookend draws me (and my students') attention with the picture of kids playing together. A great way to talk with what the kids about what they notice. I love the richness of the text and the authenticity of the photos. I am not an expert however I feel this book is authentic and not stereotypical of cultures. Classroom connection: another book that I would love to add to my classroom library. I know the kids would love spending time with this book. This would also be a great book to use in social studies when we are talking about our school community to be able to connect it on a global level.

    This title covers countries from six of the seven continents (Antarctica is not covered). What I especially liked was how they tried to show multiple students from the bigger countries. This shows that schools vary a great deal inside as well as outside the country. The book also tries to balance rural and urban environments, providing a more comprehensive look at schools worldwide. The numerous photographs make the information more real to the reader. The organization is attractive and follows the format that DK's Eyewitness books have made so popular. A great way to help broaden students view of the world.

    This is an amazing book densely packed with information about education in over 30 countries throughout the world. Actual students are used to exemplify the education system of each country. Since the same aspects of education are discussed in each section, it is easy to make comparisons and contrasts between the different countries The pictures add a great deal to the impact of the book. This book would be an excellent resource for any social studies curriculum. It is definitely targeted towards upper elementary students.Information Book; 2007; Notable Social Studies Trade Book

    EXCELLENT book that introduces readers to children from five parts of the world and some of the countries in them: The Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australasia. Each child's family, home, traditions, activities, and, of course, school, are highlighted with interesting text and photos. Each section is introduced with a map of the focus area of the world, the countries in that area, and a brief paragraph of information about each. An absolutely amazing way to teach your children about different parts of the world and the people who live there! Preschool unit: Friends in Many Lands

    I love the idea of this book: a look at children in schools all around the world. I just couldn't get into this book. I'm not sure if I wasn't in a non-fiction mood or what but it was just really boring to me, sad.
