This Is How We Do it

Chronicle Books

Follow the real lives of seven kids from Italy, Japan, Iran, India, Peru, Uganda and Russia for a single day! In Japan Kei plays Freeze Tag, while in Uganda Daphine likes to jump rope. But while the way they play may differ, the shared rhythm of their days-and this one world we all share-unites them. This genuine exchange provides a window into traditions that may be different from our own as well as a mirror reflecting our common experiences. Inspired by his own travels, Matt Lamothe transports readers across the globe and back with this luminous and thoughtful picture book.

Belle says:

This book is about children from around the world and the pages are filled with information about their lives. At the end you even see some actual photos of the children. I like this book because I felt like I was those children for a day; from breakfast, to school time, to lunch, to dinner.

Great read for ages: 4-8
