Families of China

Ages: 5 - 10 yrs.
VHS Price: $19.95
Titles from the “Families of the World” video series, the video demonstrates a format that spurs and holds interest in the individual lives of two young children from the country. The narration is by the children, as they lead us through a typical day for their family. Atypical events, like the approach of a hurricane, are dealt with as well. Cultural beliefs are simply woven into the fabric of the day, and the result is a reality-based and detail-oriented look at another world. Schools are the logical users of this series, but families would enjoy discussing likenesses and differences from the lives they lead together.
