Organized into eight chapters—continent by continent, and then by smaller geographical areas—People Around the World is packed with photographs and takes the reader on a kaleidoscopic tour of people and their lifestyles. Young readers will gain a truly global perspective on how people live as they discover how the inhabitants of familiar and unfamiliar places dress, earn a living, and enjoy their leisure time. Along the way they'll also find out what foods different people eat, what languages they speak, what they believe in, and how they are governed.
