If the World Were a Village

Aiming to provoke thought and elicit questions, this book explains facts about the world's population simply. Instead of unimaginable billions, it presents the whole world as a village of just 100 people. We find out that 22 speak a Chinese dialect and that 17 can't read or write. This book includes guidance on teaching activities for use in the classroom and includes notes for parents and teachers as well as extra teachning activities.
