This book is OK. I like the short glimpses of people groups and countries that we can learn about. My kids have learned a lot about different regions of the world, and mapping the countries has been great for their Geography skills. However the author was often very patronizing and seemed to stress that some of the groups needed missionaries to counter act the other Christian denomination missionaries in the area. I skipped over most of this. I don't feel like that was a good message to send to ...more

Oh man, what a wonderful book! When I was homeschooling and teaching geography to my kids, we read this book daily to learn about the different people groups around the world and how to pray specific prayers for them. This book really helps children to travel outside of where they live and gives them a glimpse as through a window of how others live, often so radically different than themselves.

We very much enjoyed this book even though it is a bit out of date. I have heard rumors of an update and I do hope it will come out.

A must-have for anyone working with missions groups, especially if teaching children. Many of the world's people groups are covered. Photos, personal stories of children, statistics, interesting facts, and a prayer guide for each group give a fascinating glimpse into different cultures. This would also be a nice resource for the home. The heavy Christian slant with a missions zeal make it a much better choice for a church library than for a public library.

This book was instrumental in showing our family places where God potentially wanted us to serve. As a family, we prayed through each of the countries in this book asking God where He wants us to serve. It was through this book we were first introduced to the country of Albania. And it is where our family will be serving in full time ministry.

Excellent resource for parents who want to teach their children about the nations. This prayer guide has pictures, relates to the children, and is easy to read. It's a great way for your family to pray for the nations.

This book was included in our Sonlight homeschooling curriculum. I really didn't like this book... but my kids LOVED it. They didn't articulate why they loved it. I didn't like it because I found it a very monotonous read and the tone of it felt some what uppity to me.

Shelves: geography
For young children, a geographical encyclopedia of mainly non-western countries and their cultures.
This book has good info on each country and people group, but the religious aspect of it was just ok. I did like that there were prayer suggestions for each country/people group.
