A Life Like Mine: How Children Live Around the World by Harry Belafonte is a great diversity book. It starts out with a map showing where all the children in the book are from. It is a book created in conjunction with UNICEF. In the book it explains what life as a child is like around the world. It talks about what they eat, how some children do not have enough food, and why food is necessary. It also talks about what children have to do in their cultures such as having a full time job. It talks very in depth about the importance of love and play within a family.

This book is a very good book to share with children. Not only does it talk about other cultures but also it shows how in the end we are all the same. We all need love, food, and activity. I recommend this book to anyone teaching in a classroom from 4th grade and up. It might even be okay for 3rd grade, however it talks about some intense topics.

This well researched and thought provoking book shows children from all over the globe and their daily lives.

I would use this book in geography class to introduce different lands to the children so they can relate to these children ( )

In large, colorful spreads A Life Like Mine shows the lives of children living all over the world. The book is divided into sections showing how different children get water, feed themselves, go to school, play, stay healthy, etc. The book also discusses the fact that a large number of children don't have the basic necessities. This is a great book for browsing and will be interesting to kids who like to know about kids in other cultures. ( )
