    I wanted to like this book a lotthan I did Certainly the photographs were good, showing the children and their bedrooms or what passed for their bedrooms and describing their lives in short but emotional vignettes Many of the stories were sad, and I m not just talking about the children who lived in pover...

    This book is especially targeted towards children from 9 to 13, to ponder on esp on inequality issues Each two pages has picture of a child, and little background information, and the place they sleep in not necessarily a place they always sleep in The pictures are from 16 different countries, and from different levels rich kids to very very poor ones This book was made from pictures gathered over 5 6 years, with some help from Save The Children charity.The children vary in age from This book is especially targeted towards children from 9 to 13, to ponder on esp on inequality issues Each two pages has picture of a child, and little background information, and the place they sleep in not necessarily a place they always sleep in The pictures are from 16 different countries, and from different levels rich kids to very very poor ones This book was made from pictur...

    One of my fave books of the year by British photographer James Mollison, who takes pictures of various places kids sleep, rich kids, poor kids, and the effect is profoundly sad in its depiction of worldwide inequities, of economic disparity, and how little we as a planet care about poverty and children We don t think of all children as our children, we only think of our own Sad Not our problem Or maybe we don t even think of our own Also included are photos of poor kids from the greatest One of my fave books of the year by British photographer James Mollison, who takes pictures of various places kids sleep, rich kids, poor kids, and the effect is profoundly sad in its depiction of worldwide inequities, of economic disparity, and how little we as a planet care about poverty and children We don t think of all children as our children, we only think of our own...

    Oh, I love me an insightful pictorial work.This one contains children Acknowledgement of the vaguely creepy title On each spread, the right side is a full page image of the child s bedroom The left side includes a portrait of the child against a neutral background, and a paragraph of text about the child, including information such as school, work, what they want to be when they grow up, etc.At the beginning, Mollison includes a relatively short introduction, which talks about how he starte Oh, I love me an insightful pictorial work.This one contains children Acknowledgement of the vaguely creepy title On each spread, the right side is a full page image of the child s bedroom The left side includes a portrait of the child against a neutral background, and a paragraph of text about the child, including information such as school, work, what they want to be when they grow up, etc.At the beginning, Mollison includes a relatively short introduction, which talks about how he started working on the project The ending includes a world map, designed in the same aesthetic as the cover, which indexes where the children featured are from, globally.At first, I felt that the tiny size of the font in the only words on these pages was a problem it is very small difficult to read, in fact However, minimizing the text feels like both a creative and methodical choice, as you are...

    This book really opened my eyes to what conditions other kids my age are living in around the world While some live in luxury, others live in poverty and are praying for food every day This book taught me to be grateful of what you have, a...

    The concept of this book is simple, but devastatingly effective Each two page spread has a portrait of a child, a paragraph about that child s life and a photo of the place where they sleep And within that simple set up there are whole universes Some children have rooms to themselves that they can decorate as they wish, some live in dormitories, some sleep with their families, one sleeps on discarded tires in a rubbish ...

    I read this book with my eleven year old daughter We both really liked it It really makes you think about your life, and for us it helped reinforce how well off we truly are, and how muchdifficult our lives could be It also reminded us of the inequality in the world.Other reviewers make a good point the book is not comprehensive regarding geography, nor does it describe children at all levels of prosperity But how could it For what it does present it is very interesting.We read this I read this book with my eleven year old daughter We both really liked it It really makes you think about your life, and for us it helped reinforce how well off we truly are, and how muchdifficult...

    An amazing book that nudges and then knocks the reader out of her comfort zone, whether she s fourteen or forty After growing up on Peter Spier s People or any one of UNICEF s books that present the message that We re essentially all the same at heart and want peace, pre teens should read this for a healthy dose of honesty No matter where they come from, few of the children photographed are smiling Older fans should also read Living in the Material World by Peter Menzel and Women in th An amazing book that nudges and then knocks the reader out of her comfor...

    While I liked the concept, I found the execution to be marred by A too great a focus on a few select cities e.g Kathmandu, NYC and B the selection of children many of whom would be considered as exceptional in their societies, rather than the norm In teaching, I would only use this in grade 7 with students who are mature enough to handle issues such as circumcision rituals, teen pregna...
