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
Chapter openers include a map and scene-setting photographs
Superb photographs of children and adults in representative, everyday settings
