CLICK TO SEE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

Kids don’t connect with ‘facts’; they tune out abstractions.

Kids rarely see the world beyond their own city.

Even travel doesn’t take them behind closed doors.

So, how do you engage them?

That’s what we do.

We don’t just care about learning.

We care about healing and connecting our world.

“The videos make no comparisons or judgments, merely showing what life is like in a loving family in a foreign culture…This excellent series will give children an intriguing taste of another culture and allow them to compare and contrast it with their own”

—School Library Journal

“Each meticulously produced program in this gentle series takes students through a typical day in the lives of two families with small children. …In addition to seeing the different styles of living, viewers learn interesting facts and ideas on the countries’ geography, economics and history.”

—Social Studies School Service

Watch For Free

Nine-year-old Jose lives with his family near San Juan. His mother works at a dialysis center and his father services and sells scales for science. Everyone is preparing for a big hurricane that is expected to hit the island, so they shutter windows, stock up on supplies at the stores and watch the weather forecast.

Laura, age eight, lives with her parents on their farm, where they grow bananas and tropical plants. Her father also works for a company that sells fruits and vegetables to stores and restaurants. Her mother demonstrates new environmental farming methods. We visit Laura’s school and piano lesson and go to Aricebo, where they have the world’s largest radio telescope, which scientists use to try to find life in outer space.

Customer Reviews

“Families of the World is an extremely different outlook to the way some families are raised and brought up. It is a beautiful film that will teach about ways in different parts of the world. I highly recommend it.”

—The Mommyhood Chronicles

“The Families of the World Series already has 28 amazing titles under its belt and it is a great way for families to take a journey around the world to learn about other cultures from a child’s viewpoint. In fact, the series is narrated by children and always focuses on two children’s families from an urban and rural location to get the different perspectives. There are limited cuts so it feels very real-world and it’s a nice way for children to see life as it happens in each country for children as young as five (plus a limited 30 minute viewing time – perfect).”
