Paper, markers or crayons. Also, a digital camera and printer (optional)

Brief outline of program or event:
In your home, read one of the Child´s Day series, such as “In an Indian Village” by Prodeepta Das. Talk about how life in your neighborhood is different and/or similar to life in Geeta´s community. Make your own book about what a day in your child´s life is like. Include photographs or drawings. In school, a classroom teacher or librarian could read this book to the class and then the students could make their books and bring them in for sharing. Taking it further, the books could be sent to a classroom in another country, and books could be requested from those students in return.
