This Is How We Do It follows the lives of seven REAL kids from Japan, Uganda, Russia, Iran, Peru, India and Italy for a single day. From the time each kid wakes up until the time they fall asleep, the details of their days differ: their homes are different, their schools are different, even how they play is different. In Japan, Kei plays Freeze Tag. In Uganda, Daphine likes to jump rope. In Russia, Oleg plays hockey almost every day after school. But the shared rhythm of their days--and this one world we all share--unite them together. This genuine exchange between real kids provides a window into lifestyles and traditions that may differ from our own, as well as a mirror reflecting the common experiences that unite us all. Inspired by his own travels to write this book, Matt Lamothe will transport readers across the globe and back with this gorgeously illustrated picture book.
