Jessica, age nine, lives with her family on their dairy farm in western England. Her father and grandfather milk 200 cows twice a day. Her mother packs lunches for Jessica and her sisters and drives them to school. Today the class takes a trip to the beach. The girls gather eggs, check out the new baby chicks, and play on the swing sets that their parents sell.
James is ten years old and lives with his family in Bath. They play boules, feed their guinea pigs and watch a soccer game before school. James, his sister, and his father ride their bikes to work and school. James’ grandfather rings the bells in the church tower, his father writes music and James plays piano, clarinet and recorder. We visit a birthday party, church service and street fair.
