Meet Kofi, Maria & Sunita: Family Life in Ghana, Peru & India
Meet Kofi, Maria & Sunita, three children based on real people growing up in developing countries. Through their stories, readers will learn about the customs and ways of life in the counties of Ghana, Peru, and India, helping young readers to understand the challenges facing these families and building a bridge of compassion between the reader and those with lives vastly different from their own.
Written by Lesley Anne Simmons, a spokeswoman for the World Bank in Washington, D.C. and illustrated by students from a local elementary school, Meet Kofi, Maria & Sunita will remind readers of all that is universal in our lives, including the desire to love and be loved, to better our lot, and to share our stories with each other. In a world increasingly divided and fragmented, stories like these have the power to inspire readers to work toward a better life for all people everywhere.
