Jose and his sister, and work for their parents. Jose shares the history of his homeland’s name (the island of Borinquen, renamed Puerto Rico by the Spanish after a visit and claiming by Columbus), what “good manners” mean in his country and his desire to be a veterinarian when he grows up.


Eight-year-old Laura, lives on a farm with her mother and father.

About the Series


Families of the World offers a documentary-style “day in the life” glimpse into how people in different countries live from a child’s point of view. Focusing on two children from differing homes, one urban, one rural, Families of the World invites viewers along through their daily routines, introducing both the similarities and differences that exist.


School Library Journal applauds the Families of the World series as “excellent,” providing “an intriguing taste of another culture.” The series has garnered more than 100 awards, including Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, Parents’ Choice and NAPPA (National Parenting Publications of America) as well as endorsements from KIDS FIRST! and recommendations from Dr. Toy’s Children’s Products. The series is used in classrooms around the country as a valuable tool for multi-cultural education and language learning.
