Tadessa from Ethiopia, Suchart from Thailand, Celina from Brazil...each has hopes and fears dreams and beliefs. Their cultures are different yet in many ways their daily lives are very similar as are their hopes for the future and their ways of looking at the world. Over the past two years a photographer and a teacher have travelled to more than 30 different parts of the world to meet these children. Their stories are recorded in this remarkable book published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). Extraordinary photographs bring to life the children's families and homes, their clothes and food, their friends and favourite games and other aspects of their daily lives. The children live in places as diverse as New York, Mongolia, and the Amazon Basin. There are children from both industrialised and developing nations, including children from tribal cultures. Their environments include mountains, deserts, rainforests, plains, and polar regions. Most live in extended or nuclear families but Suchart a novice monk live in a monastery and Tedasse an Ethiopian boy lives in an orphanage. Children everywhere will enjoy reading about the lives of these children who share their world...'I'd love to travel into space because I want to see if there are any creatures on other planets' - Ji-Koo, South Korea. 'I like living by the river - I want to live here for the rest of my life. I love the forest and it makes me sad when people chop down the trees' - Celina, Brazil. 'I think that the best thing about being a child is that you get lots of love from your family' - Michael, Israel. 'I see on television that there is a lot of war and fighting in the world and I wish that it would end and that the world could be peaceful' - Houda, Morocco.
