Description: A revised edition of the fascinating and thought-provoking multi-award-winner and international bestseller. At this moment, there are more than 7 billion people on the planet! It's hard to picture so many people at one time - but what if we imagine the whole world as a village of just 100 people? In this village: 21 people speak a Chinese dialect, 10 earn less than two dollars a day, 14 cannot read or write, 45 have a television in their homes, 47 do not always have enough to eat. If the World Were a Village tells us who we are, where we live, how fast we are growing, what languages we speak, what religions we practise and more. This new edition updates and expands the statistics and provides new information on food security, energy consumption and health. There are several new activities that will stimulate discussion and show children and families how they can become more world-minded. Over 400,000 copies of this book have already been sold in 17 languages.
