If the World Were a Village tells us who we are, where we live, how fast we are growing, which languages we speak, which religions we practice and more. Written by David J. Smith, illustrated by Shelagh Armstrong.

Books Official Stockist

This multi-award-winner and international bestseller is fascinating and thought-provoking. Using a 'world-in-miniature' approach it opens our eyes to a wider view of our planet and its human inhabitants, telling us who we are, where we live, how fast we are growing, which languages we speak, which religions we practice and more.

At this moment there are more than 6 billion people on this planet. Picturing so many people at one time is hard - but what if we imagine the whole world as a village of just 100 people?

In this village:

22 people speak a Chinese dialect

20 earn less than a dollar a day

17 cannot read or write

50 are often hungry

24 have a television in their homes.
 
Paperback. 32 pages. Colour illustrations. 30.5cm x 23cm.
