An impressive new picture book, “This is How We Do It (One Day in the Lives of Seven Kids from around the World“), (Chronicle, 5/17) follows the lives of kids from Italy, Iran, India, Japan, Peru, Uganda, and Russia for a single day. The book explores what they eat for breakfast, what they wear to school, where they live, who live with, how they play, and so on. While how they spend their days certainly varies, the cadence of their lives is more similar than different. The book concludes with photos of the actual families the book is based on, and a glossary. This is an amazing look into other kids’ lives and traditions. A true multicultural journey!
