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.
