Wake Up, World! (Beatrice Hollyer)

By , March 13, 2007 4:13 pm

Wake Up, World!: A Day in the Life of Children Around the World is another wonderful book from author Beatrice Hollyer (see my post on her book Let’s Eat).

Numerous photographs and short captions record the days of children in eight very different countries (Australia, India, USA, Ghana, Vietnam, England, Brazil, and Russia). Each chapter is a different part of the day. The photos and description of what each child is doing at that time of day are all grouped together for easy comparison.

What fun it is to see how other children live, and to learn the important lesson that we are all basically the same!

    For Beatrice Hollyer,
    I’ve read Wake up World and thought it was amazing how other children live. I am very interested in other cultures and how people live there. I am 10 years old. Can you give me some advice on writing children’s books.
    Thank you very much,
    Emily-Claire
