Publisher's Summary

The World Around Us series introduces children to complex cultural, social, and environmental issues in a straightforward and accessible way. These nonfiction audiobooks tackle global concerns and initiate conversations about subjects that are difficult, sad, or overwhelming with school-aged children who are just beginning to observe the world outside their homes.

A gentle introduction to the issue of poverty, On Our Street explores the realities of people living with inadequate resources. Using age-appropriate language, this book addresses mental illness, homelessness, and refugee status as they are connected to this issue. Insightful quotes from individuals and organizations such as UNICEF are included throughout to add further perspective on the issue. An invaluable section on how kids can help empowers listeners to take what they have learned and use it to make a difference.

Child psychologist Dr. Jillian Roberts created this series to guide parents/caregivers through conversations about difficult issues in a reassuring and hopeful manner and help children understand their expanding awareness of the world around them.
