This Is How We Do It
In many ways we are the same. In small, yet fascinating ways we are different. In This Is How We Do It: One Day in the Lives of Seven Kids from Around the World, your kindergartner gets a snapshot of what a normal day looks like for seven kids from Italy, Japan, Iran, India, Peru, Uganda, and Russia. From the homes they live in and the schools they attend to the games they play, This Is How We Do It will give your child a peek into the traditions that may differ and the patterns that remain the same.

A great way to show children that not everyone is the same, that we all do different things and that is wonderful! We read through in one sitting because my K was so eager to keep going and exploring how others her age live.
This book is so beautiful and so educational. It’s a great introduction to social studies and the world around us.
I wish everyone owns this book.
It shows diversity in such a beautiful way. Very nice illustrations and beautifully written.
Our kids love this and ask me to read this over and over!
We adore this book, “This Is How We Do It.” I honestly wasn’t sure what my kids would think. But my 3 and 5 year old devour it.
We read it different ways which they came up with: front cover to back cover, then we will pick a “child/country” in the book and read it through all the way just focusing on them and their story, and then we will pick it up just to read about all the unique ways the different children “get to school.” We come back to it over and over again. Not often reading it the same way.
It is amazing how many questions it opens up about countries and cultures. Truly a great addition to your home and class library.
