This Is How We Do It
Our price: $16.99
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.

This was a great book. Not only did my children enjoy this book, I enjoyed it as well. It was fun to see in detail what the children featured in the book did throughout their day. The illustrations were well done. And the fact that they were all real people from other countries was pretty neat.
This book is absolutely beautiful. I love reading it to my daughter. We have only had it for a couple months and we have already read through it a few times. Every time we read it, she asks new questions and has different observations. It is beautifully written and illustrated. I highly recommend this book.
This is an excellent book for teaching children cultural diversity. The cartoon illustrations are really beautiful and we also have enjoyed seeing actual photographs of the real families in the back of the book. We usually pick one topic to cover for the week. There is also a section in the back of the book that covers any words that are unfamiliar in our English language. We will probably go through this book more than once this school year!
The book is good but I think it should be organized a little better we go back and forth to the pages sometimes. It is not a big deal but it takes away from the context a bit.
I love reading this book to my two young boys - it's like going on a quick trip to a different culture as we stay sitting on our couch. I love showing them that the world is so much bigger than we can imagine and doing things differently than us is interesting and provokes an open mindedness in them :)
