Series Around the World

Wherever we live there is always somewhere we call home. We may share it with our family or sometimes with a whole community. This book looks at the homes of children from all around the world. There are photographs from countries in Africa, Asia, South America and Europe. Published in association with Oxfam this series aims to draw parallels between children from many different cultures.
