Check out the book trailer for This is How We Do It by Matt Lamothe (Chronicle, 2017). From the promotional copy:
This is How We Do It follows the real lives of seven kids from Italy, Japan, Iran, India, Peru, Uganda, and Russia for a single day.
In Japan, Kei plays Freeze Tag, while, in Uganda, Daphine likes to jump rope. But while the way they play may differ, the shared rhythm of their days—and this one world we all share—unites them. This genuine exchange provides a window into traditions that may be different from our own as well as a mirror reflecting our common experiences.
Inspired by his own travels, Matt Lamothe transports readers across the globe and back with this luminous and thoughtful picture book.
