“The videos make no comparisons or judgments, merely showing what life is like in a loving family in a foreign culture…This excellent series will give children an intriguing taste of another culture and allow them to compare and contrast it with their own” -School Library Journal.

“Each meticulously produced program in this gentle series takes students through a typical day in the lives of two families with small children.  Other children speaking English give voice to the family members as they narrate scenes that show meal preparation and eating, jobs done in the home and outside, activities at school, home work and games, shopping trips, modes of transportation, religious customs, evening routines, and getting ready for bed.  In addition to seeing the different styles of living, viewers learn interesting facts and ideas on the countries' geography, economics and history.”  Social Studies School Service
