I would recommend the Families of the World DVDs to anyone who would love to learn about what “normal” is for families in other parts of the world.

We applaud Families of the World as an excellent source of providing an intriguing taste of another culture.

Families of the World Video Series for Kids Now Available at Huge Savings!

Families of the World programs are wonderful educational tools for teaching geography, social studies, multiculturalism and language!  Programs come with free teacher guides filled with information about each country.  Shows make great gifts for teachers, kids and grandchildren.

The series was featured on PBS national television and has won more than 100 awards and endorsements from educational and parenting organizations.   All 28 countries are now available in steaming and DVD at greatly reduced prices.  How can we reduce prices?   We producers of the series are now marketing the programs ourselves, eliminating the 'middle man' and passing the saving on to you.

Families of the World offers a documentary-style “day in the life” glimpse from a child’s point of view into how people  around the world live.  Focusing on two
children from differing homes, one urban, one rural, the programs invite viewers along through families’ daily routines, introducing us to both differences and similarities between their lives and ours.
