What if the world's population were represented by a village of just 100 people? How many speak a Chinese dialect? How many cannot read or write? And how many chickens would this village have?

This beautifully illustrated and unique book, revised and updated for 2018 onwards, explains facts about the world's population in a simple, non-political and fascinating way. It presents the whole world as a village of just 100 people, instead of unimaginable billions. People's religions are explored, and their education, standard of living and much, much more are discovered.

If the World Were a Village is perfect for inspiring children with an interest in geography, citizenship and different customs and cultures, whether they read it at home or in school.
