At School by Oxfam, Oxfam

Children all around the world go to school. But the schools are often very different: some are very small, others very large; some have playing fields while others a simple yard; some have many students in a class, and others just a few. This book, perfect to share with a young child, has large clear photographs of different schools from all around the world. It includes a map of the world indicating the countries the photographs come from. Published in association with Oxfam this series aims to draw parallels between children from many different cultures.


Filled with wonderful evocative photographs of children from a variety of cultures living their day to day lives. A prefect introduction to the study of geography for the young. Back to School Bookseller The pictures make a great talking point, plunging readers into what is similar and what is different about the experiences of the children in the text. Nursery Education The book embraces inclusion with the message that all the featured children, despite their varying locations, have a school experience; it also effectively highlights the differences in educational experiences around the globe. Children will find this interesting and informative and the bold design and variety of illustrations lend themselves to being shared in a classroom setting. The content is sure to prompt further questions and rewarding group discussions and to encourage empathy towards school children around the world. Armadillo Magazine Nursery teams would find the photographs in these books an attractive and helpful resource for early geography projects like people and places. Books for Keeps
