"If the World Were a Village" DVD Review +{Giveaway}


If the World Were a Village is a great new DVD based off of the book If the World Were a Village by David J. Smith.

If we took everyone in the whole world and see what that would look like if they were only 100 people living in a village together. This is a well done DVD that looks at statistics across the globe with things like race, age, language, religion, and more. It really puts some things in perspective by looking at it on a smaller scale.

From the publisher:
For example, out of 100 people:
  • 61 would be from Asia, 13 from Africa, 5 from North America, 8 from Central and South America, 12 from Europe and 1 from Oceania (Australia, South Pacific, etc).
  • More than half would speak one of eight languages: Chinese, Hindi, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Bengali, Arabic and Russian.
  • Represented faiths would include Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Muslim and non-organized religions.
  • 39 people would be under 19 years of age, 42 would be between ages 20-49, 18 would be older than 50 and 1 would be older than 80.
I truly enjoyed this DVD. I love children's literature, and it was really neat to see a great book come to life. This is great for children of all ages. And I can see that it would be a fantastic resource in schools and classrooms. There is so much we can learn and be more aware of by thinking of the world on a much smaller scale.

This DVD runs about 25 minutes. It's also available in English, Spanish, and French. You can see those options at www.master-comm.com. It is great for children and adults of all ages. They recommend children ages 6 and up.
