Tonight our daughter pulled out these books by Peter Menzel - Material World and What the World Eats and started taking another look at them.
I had purchased them last year for our study on Human Rights. They were on the coffee table for months as we scoured over the pictures, stories, facts and statistics in each chapter.
We would go through them when friends came to visit and have rich discussions on poverty, human rights, distribution of wealth and interesting things that we had learned about other countries.
They were an education in themselves! Both of them!! I encourage you to find these books and use them for learning about how others live. I believe that Peter Menzel has more books to explore.
