This Is How We Do It By Matt Lamothe

Following the lives of seven real children who live in Italy, Japan, Iran, India, Peru, Uganda, and Russia as they journey through a day, This Is How We Do It by Matt Lamothe is filled with colorful pictures and information that readers ages 4 through 8 can relate to and learn from.  With short, simple sentences, each child tells about his or her meals, clothing, home, school, hobbies, and family in a format that will invite reading and re-reading this treasure of diversity over and over.  Whether you look at one page and compare, for example, the different ways each child gets to school or pick one boy or girl and flip through the book to get a sense of that particular child's day, this hardback picture book is sure to enhance an appreciation for cultures and customs around the world.  Pictures of the children who inspired the story and a glossary of terms make this a must-have for every early elementary classroom.  ​
