Imagine...Science: If the World Were 100 People

Hay Festival 2023, 

Journey around the planet with the author and illustrator of If the World Were 100 People, shortlisted for the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize 2022. Learn about all kinds of cultures in this globe-trotting experience for younger readers. It can be hard to get your head around the scale of our world full of 8 billion people. Imagining the world as a global village of just 100 people makes it much easier to understand all the different aspects of life in our society.

The small-scale world that Jackie McCann and Aaron Cushley have created in their vibrant picture book offers answers to questions such as: are there more males or females? What languages do they speak? Who can read and write? How many have access to the internet or have enough food to eat? Does everyone have access to electricity or clean water? Finding out the answers will help you become a global citizen.
