Take a trip around the globe and meet the people and lifestyles that make up our world in this richly illustrated reference.
Organized into eight chapters—continent by continent, and then by smaller geographical areas—People Around the World is packed with photographs and takes the reader on a kaleidoscopic tour of people and their lifestyles. Young readers will gain a truly global perspective on how people live as they discover how the inhabitants of familiar and unfamiliar places dress, earn a living, and enjoy their leisure time. Along the way they'll also find out what foods different people eat, what languages they speak, what they believe in, and how they are governed.
• A reference section at the end of each chapter covers literacy rates, population densities, currencies, and life expectancies
