This book is about a typical day in the life of an eight year-old Brazilian boy, beautifully photographed and will appeal to all age groups

Personal Response: I thought the book was very well written. I think it is important to expose children to the differences and similarities of people who come from different places and speak different languages. I liked how it tied in the facts about Brazil with the events in the book and had photographs to grab a child's attention and show what life really looks like in Brazil. This book would be good for a multicultural lesson and could lead to kids writing their own book about their daily life. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0711220417, Paperback)

Cassio spends much of his school day outside, and he especially likes learning to grow vegetables in the school garden. Cassio and his friend push each other home from school in Cassio's carrinho "barrow", stopping to buy their favourite sweets (doce-de-leite) on the way. When it comes to the evening meal, his mother always cooks extra, so that there will be enough if friends or family wish to call by. This book is part of a series of photographic information books concentrating on the daily lives and experiences of children in countries around the world. The other countries featured in the series are China, Russia, India, Ghana, Vietnam, Lapland, Egypt, South Africa and Peru.
