The simple narrative format with the video of the children's day is informative and interesting. We follow them to school and the doctor and see them interacting at social events with their families. Two children share their days with us. We learn some of the similarities and differences between daily life in their country and ours. The contents flows well and holds your interest. Everyone behaves respectfully. The narratives are easy to follow and the addition of Spanish words, in context, aids in exposing kids to another language. It is fun being part of the children's lives. The narrative reading on the second portion is a bit stilted but the content is good. Nicely paced, not too fast or slow. Holds your interest. Broadens a child's global perspective.
Guadalupe is eight years old and lives with her parents and grandparents near the top of a small mountain in the state of Veracruz. The whole village, surrounded by coffee trees, is built on land that used to be part of a large hacienda. Spend a day with Guadalupe as she visits the hacienda and goes to school.
