Resource Description

This engaging resource provides an introduction to the lives of children in fourteen different countries. Written in simple language and accompanied by engaging illustrations, it presents a variety of diverse families, including single parent, same-sex, and multi-racial families, and focuses on the common theme of the love the children have for their own particular family. The Canadian resource, for grades 3-7, can foster critical thinking, promote discussions of diversity, cultural norms, geographic implications, and personal experiences, and be a starting point for in-depth learning and cross-curricular projects.
