Sheffield, United Kingdom (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
The free book “Games for Kids of the World," features 15 different children’s games from every continent of the world that are of wide appeal to all children. The games are specifically chosen ones that don’t require an expensive setup or specific equipment, and therefore can be played wherever you are, by any child. The book is hand illustrated and features player introductions to help readers imagine life in each country. This is a labor of love for our contributors, who have happily combed through their childhood memories to hand pick and write the best of their childhood play experiences to share with children from other cultures. We hope it can be used in classrooms, in living rooms and in backyards across the world.
PocketCultures aims to be a place to find out about different countries and world cultures: personal observations and accounts of daily life, articles and interesting projects related to countries and cultures of the world; a place to understand how people of other places and cultures live, how they dress, what they eat, what music they listen to, what they think. Our site features articles by a team of more than 30 contributors from all over the world, who all volunteer their time and efforts to bring that reality to our readers.
According to Lucy, co-founder of PocketCultures.com, “Our website is all about bringing cultures together, about creating positive connections and challenging stereotypes. Since we launched the site in 2008, we have traditionally focused on adults. But then one day one of our regional contributors, Marta, from Spain, suggested the idea of a book of children’s games and the idea quickly caught fire. We hope this book can be used for children to learn and appreciate other cultures, and have fun while they are at it!”
