This Is How We Do It

£4.00 GBP £14.00 GBP

Follow the real lives of seven children from Italy, Japan, Iran, India, Peru, Uganda, and Russia for a single day!

In Japan Kei plays Freeze Tag, while in Uganda Daphine likes to jump rope. But while the way they play may differ, the shared rhythm of their days—and this one world we all share—unites them.

This genuine exchange provides a window into traditions that may be different from our own as well as a mirror reflecting our common experiences. Inspired by his own travels, Matt Lamothe transports readers across the globe and back with this luminous and thoughtful picture book.

Plus, we've got a FREE activity sheet to accompany the book that will be sent to you once you've purchased this book.

Great for ages 5-8.

Size: 9 x 12 in;
Pages: 52 pp;

"The similarities and differences between the seven lives are both delicate and astonishing in their details.” —Booklist

“Readers will enjoy making cultural comparisons . . . as they follow each child through his or her day.”
