All children love to play. How does playtime differ for children from different countries? How is it the same? Readers are exposed to a wide range of interesting sports and games played in various countries around the world. Learning about these activities enhances knowledge of other cultures and encourages readers to appreciate differences but also look for common ground. This relevant critical-thinking exercise also complements elementary curricula and is enhanced by fact boxes and relatable, full-color photographs of children at play around the world.
