We are all special and unique, but we're also similar too. We each have meal times, rest and play times, but carry out each of these activities in different ways. Find out how Joshua from Australia, A'nh from Vietnam and Kwasi from Kenya spend a typical day in One Day in our World. Our world is wonderful and diverse, so let's find out more about it through the eyes of these three children as they interact with their families and communities in their home countries.
The author, Sara Mithen, is married to Gerard and is Mum to Joshua, a beautiful little boy. Sara has two degrees, a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Commerce. This is her first children's book. Through writing the book, she wants children to understand that our world is diverse. With these seeds planted, children may grow to have more understanding and tolerance of each other, enabling them to contribute to making the world a happier place. The illustrator, Natalie Stone, is a Tasmanian Artist and Mum who has exhibited and sold her work through numerous exhibitions. She tests all her stories on her two greatest critics - her children. She has illustrated for Monkey in a Tree Counts 123, and her second book Monkey ABC is coming soon.
