This is How We Do It by Matt Lamothe

Genre: Children's Picture Book
Publisher: Chronicle Kids
Release Date: May 2, 2017



This is How We Do It is a book I can completely get behind and offer high praise. In a culture where diversity should be everything, but some spin it in negative ways, I hope many parents will add Matt Lamothe's book to their children's shelves.

The book is very complex, yet never hard to read. It takes seven children from different areas of the world and introduces you to their life. You learn about their family life, the clothes they wear, what school is like, what they typically eat, and many more unique tidbits. At the end, the book delves into the real families the book is based on. You get to see real photos. That's followed by a glossary of terms for things children may not be as familiar with, such as foreign words like "abwooli."

I loved This is How We Do It. It's not an overly long book, but it does give a complete picture into a typical day in the life of children from India, Iran, Italy, Japan, Peru, Russia, and Uganda.
