This text provides statistics as to the characteristics of the population of the world represented as a village of one hundred people. The book notes important data concerning the population growth of the village, natural resources available to different groups of people, distribution of wealth and food, languages spoken, and so forth. A wonderful teaching tool, the statistics are thought-provoking, and the vibrant chalk illustrations help to make tangible what exactly this village might look like.
