Follow the lives of seven real kids from Italy, Japan, Iran, India, Peru, Uganda, and Russia for a single day.
From the time each child wakes up until the time they fall asleep, the details of their day may differ. How do they play? In Japan, Kei plays Freeze Tag. In Italy, Romeo has rock-throwing contests. In Russia, Oleg plays hockey almost every day after school. How they play may vary, but the parallel rhythm of their days – and this one world we all share – unites them.
This genuine exchange provides a window into lives and traditions that may differ from our own as well as a mirror reflecting the common experiences that unite us. Inspired by his own travels, Matt Lamothe transports readers across the glob and back with this thoughtful and stunning picture book.
