Do they prefer the predictability of home? Do they crave discovery or tend toward introspection?&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Families of the World video series draws in all kinds of kids&hellip;and adults, too&hellip;as it opens doors into the lives of 60 families in 30 countries. The shows give kids the opportunity to compare and contrast &nbsp;foods, homes, games, schools, and communities with their own.<br /> <br /> Each film focuses on a different country, following two families from breakfast to bedtime. And in the new shows, children also see what people all over the world are doing to protect the earth. <br /> <br /> In the 1990s producer Georgi Marquisee and her husband Mark pursued their life-long interest in education and culture by developing the series, produced by their company, Arden Media. <br /> <br /> More than a hundred awards later, after a run on PBS, <br /> the series took a break when Mark developed Alzheimer&rsquo;s.<br /> These days Mark is doing well, and Georgi has gathered a creative and caring support team to help produce new shows.<br /> <br /> In a world where learning about other ways of doing and thinking is increasingly important, these programs present information, ideas and customs in a context that makes them understandable and relatable. <br /> <br /> Georgi says, &ldquo;Kids rarely see the world beyond their own city. Even<br /> travel doesn&rsquo;t take them behind closed doors. That&rsquo;s<br /> what Families of the World does. It&rsquo;s &lsquo;almost like being there&rsquo;!&rdquo; <br /> <br /> Stream current and new programs on Vimeo and through FamiliesoftheWorld.com.<br /> Download free online teachers guides for each country.<br /> <br /> <br /><a href="FamiliesoftheWorld.com" target="_blank">FamiliesoftheWorld.com</a><br /></span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Phone 302-571-1754</span></p> https://www.creativechild.com/article/2076 Tue, 10 May 2022 00:00:00 -0700 Breathe Baby Breathe with Moonlight Slumber
