What is a regular day like at school in Japan? At what age do children start going to school in Finland? Questions such as these are answered for readers curious about the ways kids learn in different countries. This volume allows students to sharpen their critical-thinking skills, as they are invited to compare and contrast their own lives as students to the lives of students from other parts of the world. Insightful fact boxes, an accessible glossary, and eye-catching, full-color photographs work with the age-appropriate text to enhance multicultural curriculum topics.
