To be honest, I didn't read every word in this book. Viewing the pictures and reading bits and pieces here and there is definitely sufficient. This fabulous book shows how people live around the world. Specifically, it shows a family from each selected country with all (or most of) their material possessions.

I picked up this book a couple of nights ago, quickly became engrossed in it and suddenly, an hour had passed. Today, I looked at the book with my 3 girls (ages 9, 7 and 4). They were completely intrigued. This could be a life-shaping book for them.
