The Families of the World DVDs are a wonderful series. We've viewed quite a few of the DVDs and loved them all. They now have 25 titles and are growing more. These DVDs show what life is really like for families living in other countries of the world. It's a neat perspective from that of a child to show what their lives are like. And they always show contrasting families, so you truly see different parts of living in that country.
In Families of Kenya there is Prince, an 11-year-old boy, who lives in Nairobi. You get to see how his day goes with school, friends, and even a local festival. And you'll also meet 11-year-old John. John lives on a farm with his parents and has a long walk to his school. And he shows us what the wildlife is like with a safari tour.
When making Families of Afghanistan the producers found information about the country really hard to come by. It was also very difficult to film because they were not allowed to film any outdoor scenes. You will meet 13-year-old Zamora who lives in the country with her parents and other family. You'll see how she helps out around the farm with the animals and gardens. She also attends religious classes and studies the Koran. And Madina is a 12-year-old who lives with her family and goes to school in the mornings. She studies math, science, language, history, sports and computers. And she's helpful with chores around the house with her family.
The Families of the World DVDs are recommended for children ages 5-11. They all retail for $29.95 each. They would make a great addition to any classroom, library, or home school classroom to help students learn about other countries through another child's eyes.
