A great book for the young.2014年11月19日に英国でレビュー済み
This is a most thoughtful idea translated into a most appealing book for children of a considerable age span – probably from around 4 years with guidance and into the early teens. Like so many great ideas it is essentially simple in its concept. Whether used as a focus for discussion in the classroom, read to younger children or read by the older ones, it will stimulate minds in the most entertaining way. The Global Village is here given fresh and colourful meaning. Again, like the best of children’s books, it will exercise plenty of pull on the attention of adults. Highly recommended.
Good school resource2015年8月14日に英国でレビュー済み
Part of me was hoping for more of a detailed book, but I bought this because I intended to use it in my maths lessons (I'm a secondary school maths teacher) and it gives some great info to make resources for pupils at school. REally helps them visualise percentages and ratio. Some kids did comment though, that "Clean air? It's a village, if one of them has clean air they all do... villages aren't that big!"

This is a great book to help children - and adults - to understand unequal divisions and access to resources on a global scale. I do think, however, that it needs to be updated. I have given this book to many teachers who haven't heard of it. It really does spell it out in a very easy to understand way.
