In this book we visit 15 schools in various corners of the world to see how kids learn in different countries or cultures.
Kids go to school all around the world, but the types of schools or the school systems vary from place to place. Would you like to see where kids in Japan or in Himalayas go to school? Would you like to know how a school on a boat works? Or what a school in a rainforest looks like? This book will show you that while some schools are pretty similar to what you know, others can be completely different and surprising.
In each chapter a local kid poses as a guide who introduces us to the type of school or a school system of a certain country or culture. Kids will learn that every nation has its own way of learning and that difference is what makes each culture special.
