For over 20 years, the National Parenting Publications Awards — or NAPPA – has been the “go-to” source for parents and professionals seeking the best children’s products (toys, games, books, music, DVDs, software, video games, websites) and parenting resources (books, DVDs, maternity and baby gear, accessories and more).
Narrated by children, 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. “Families of Philippines,” introduces two children from differing cities and follows them in their daily activities from waking to bedtime, all the while showing young viewers the amazing similarities between their own lives and those of children the same age living thousands of miles away: similar chores, school and extra-curricular activities and family interactions.
School Library Journal applauds Families of the World as “excellent,” providing “an intriguing taste of another culture.” The series, which has garnered repeated acclaim and awards from Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, Parents’ Choice, KIDS FIRST! and Dr. Toy is used in classrooms around the country as a valuable tool for multi-cultural education.
