...a book about the world's people
"At the moment, there are 6.7 billion people on the planet! It's hard to picture so many people at one time--but what if we imagine the whole world as a village of just 100 people?
In this village:
21 people speak a Chinese dialect
10 earn only about a dollar a day
13 cannot read or write
28 have a television in their homes
Only 34 always have enough to eat
If The World Were A Village tells us who we are, where we live, how fast we are growing, what languages we speak, what religions we practice and more. So come and learn about our global village. What you find may surprise you!"
