At this moment, there are 7 billion people on the planet! It's hard to picture so many people at one time - but what if we imagine the whole world as a village of just 100 people?

In this village:
21 people speak a Chinese dialect
10 earn less than two dollars a day
14 cannot read or write
45 have a television in their homes
47 do not always have enough to eat

"If the World Were a Village" tells us who we are, where we live, how fast we are growing, what languages we speak, what religions we practice and more. This new edition updates and expands the statistics and provides new information on food security, energy consumption and health, as well as several new activities that will stimulate discussion and show children and families how they can become more world-minded.
