In this village, for example, 61 are from Asia and only five from the U.S. and Canada. Nine speak English while 22 speak a Chinese dialect. Sixty people are always hungry, and 32 breathe polluted air. By getting to know these 100 villagers, children discover that people in other parts of the world often lead very different lives and have problems that affect everyone on earth. The text is accompanied by full-page illustrations in softly rendered pastels. Suggestions for helping children learn more about their place in the global village are included.

Thought-provoking and highly effective, this world-in-miniature will open eyes to a wider view of our planet and its human inhabitants.
