Twelve posters show families—in front of their homes, with all of their belongings—in Bhutan, Cuba, Iceland, Japan, Kuwait, Mali, Mexico, Mongolia, Samoa, South Africa, Thailand, and the United States.

The curriculum guide helps students “read” each detailed photograph, draw inferences, compare and contrast, and make generalizations about our “material world.” The guide also supplies critical thinking questions and reading strategies. In an exclusive DVD interview complemented by rare footage and photographs, Menzel and his partner, Faith D’Aluisio, share their unique perspectives on world cultures, health, sustainability, globalization, and journalism that matters. The related paperback provides more details about the social and economic conditions of each family, as well as lessons on world cultures, geography, and economics. Aligns with Common Core State Standards.
