How Can You Teach Your Kids Gratitude? This Book Can Help!

Don't let your kids get caught up in STUFF. The book “If the World Were a Village” by David J. Smith is a beautifully illustrated children’s story that takes the world population of 6.8 billion and shrinks it to a village of 100 people, then gives facts about this population. Examples: 

  • out of 100 villagers, 61 would come from Asia
  • 17 would not have access to clean water
  • 48 would not be free to speak/act according to their beliefs

The facts are eye-opening as we see ourselves as among the most fortunate!

If the World Were a Village: A Book about the World's People $13
Newly revised with updated statistics, several new activities and completely new material on food security, energy and health. By exploring the lives of the 100 villagers, children will discover that life in other nations is often very different from their own.
