Children Just Like Me - Book
by Barnabas and Anabel Kindersley in association with UNICEF

A Unique Celebration of Children Around The World

Tadesse from Ethiopia, Suchart from Thailand, Celina from Brazil...each of these children has hopes and fears, dreams and beliefs. Their cultures are different, yet in many ways their daily lives are very similar, as are their hopes for the future and their ways of looking at the world.

Over the past two years, a photographer and a teacher have traveled to more than 30 countries, meeting and interviewing children. Each child’s story is recorded in this remarkable book, published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Extraordinary photographs bring to life the children’s families and homes, their clothes and food, their friends and favorite games, and other aspects of their daily lives.

The children live in places as diverse as New York, Mongolia, and the Amazon Basin. There are children from both industrialized and developing nations, children from busy cities and remote rural communities, and children from tribal cultures. Their environments include mountains, deserts, rain forests, plains, and polar regions. Most live in families, but Suchart, a novice monk, lives in a monastery, and Tadesse, an Ethiopian boy lives in an orphanage. Children everywhere will enjoy reading about the lives of these children who share their world.
