Children Just Like Me: A new celebration of children around the world (Hardcover)

A favorite in classrooms, libraries, and homes for more than 20 years, this brand-new edition of Children Just Like Me has been updated for today’s generation.

Children Just Like Me has been a favorite in classrooms, libraries, and homes for over 20 years!  To celebrate this milestone, DK has come out with a brand new edition.   Children Just Like Me highlights 36 different countries and profiles 44 children and their daily lives for global learning for children.  This updated book celebrates the twentieth anniversary of this special project by adding all-new photography, maps, and facts regarding the unique insight of children’s lives around the world.  Children learn about children in different countries and cultures by showing their homes, food, outfits, schools, families, and hobbies.

Meet children like;

  • Bolat, an eight-year-old from Kazakhstan who likes to cycle, play with his pet dogs, and play the dromba
  • Joaquin from New Jersey who enjoys reading and spending time with his family, and whose favorite food is bacon
  • Yaroslav from Moscow who likes to make robots.

From Argentina to New Zealand to China to Israel, this brand new edition gives children a look at their peers from around the word in simple text and engaging photographs.  It’s a great way to celebrate international cultures and is also a great way for kids to understand that there are similarities and differences between their lives and others —no matter where they live.  Children’s lives are documented from rural farms to busy cities and showcases their daily routines, stories of friends and family, and dreams for the future that are spoken directly from the children.  DK also offers lots of free supplemental learning activities, so it’s a great resource for homeschooling or the classroom.  The content is appropriate and interesting to draw in young readers to learn about global families around the world.

Check it out!  Download DK’s free activity kit that includes a template for kids to write their own profile page (just like in the book!), a world flags matching game, and activity ideas for hosting an international day for your child and their friends.

Additional Learning! Click Around the World in Tasty Plates to learn and try recipes, perfect for an international celebration. Click this Video: Meet the Children to travel around the world to meet some of the children featured in the new edition.

Children Just Like Me is a wonderful passport to a celebratory journey around the world.  This book is perfect for children who are curious about the children of the world and their stories.
