Today, it's easy for children to develop preconceived notions about the world and other people based on simply what they see and hear in their immediate surroundings. MOMENT--a critically acclaimed, thought-provoking book for children about children--aims to dispel such biases and misconceptions by presenting young readers with over 100 images of places, faces and landscapes from around the emerging world--developing countries in Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. The book contains powerful and timely messages intended to spark lively and enriching conversations in both homes and classrooms with the goal of fostering understanding, empathy and appreciation for what we all have in common: our humanity.
Author Robert Abad is an emerging markets specialist who has traveled extensively over the past 30 years. He created MOMENT to inspire young trailblazers and activists to be adventurous and see the world through the eyes of others.
MOMENT is a unique resource that educators and librarians can integrate into their global study lessons and that parents can use with their children to explore the rich cultural diversity that exists in the great wide world.
