SMALL WORLD (How Our Lives are Connected)
(October 2006)

FACES: People, Places, and Cultures is a Cobblestone publication for children ages 9 and older and a 2007 Parents' Choice Silver Honor Winner. This issue, SMALL WORLD (How Our Lives are Connected), edited by Global Center Assistant Director, Deborah Hutton, focused on explaining globalization.

The Cobblestone Web site writes:

"You may have heard the word globalization. But what does is mean, exactly? In this issue you'll see just how small our world has become. Can you guess who are probably the world's longest serving world ambassadors? Do you know where your groceries, your family's car, or even some of the words you use come from? This issue covers how entertainment, communications, and commerce have all gone global.

Become a world traveler - no passport needed. FACES® brings the world to kids. The coolest adventures await young readers in each issue as they visit places and cultures both far and near, explore new foods and customs, and meet other kids all around the world. FACES® is the greatest traveling companion for the curious kid.

In a world overflowing with differences, FACES® brings it all together. Each 52-page issue takes kids on a journey about how people around the world live today by exploring their livelihoods, traditions, and pastimes."

You can order copies of this issue at the Cobblestone Web site.
