"This delightfully colorful and informative picture book takes the reader inside the life of seven kids in different countries between the age of 7 and 11. We get to see illustrations of their families, their meals, their homes, their commutes, their schools, their experiences and the side by side comparisons really help illuminate how beautifully different and how familiar all of their lives are to each other. The cultures of each of these kids shine bright through the pages as we get a glimpse into their daily routines and learn ‘how they do it.’"--Reviewed by Sallie

— From Sallie Recommends


Follow one day in the real lives of seven kids from around the world--Italy, Japan, Iran, India, Peru, Uganda, and Russia

In Japan, Kei plays Freeze Tag, while in Uganda, Daphine likes to jump rope. While the way they play may differ, the shared rhythm of their days--and this one world we all share--unites them.

This genuine exchange provides a window into traditions that may be different from our own as well as mirrors reflecting our common experiences. Inspired by his own travels, Matt Lamonthe transports readers across the globe and back with this luminous and thoughtful picture book.
