WIN - Families of Kenya DVD

All-NewFamilies of Kenya

Arrives on DVD November 2, 2010

Newest Title in the Multi-Award-Winning

Families of the World DVD Series from Master Communications

The series – 25 titles and growing – enables future travelers to reach across the globe and visit other people and cultures, all from a child’s point of view. Always focusing on two children from differing households, one urban, one rural, and narrated by children, Families of the World DVDs invite viewers to follow two families’ daily routines, introducing both the similarities and differences that exist between them, as well as us.

In Families of Kenya we meet 11-year-old Prince, a sixth grader who lives in the city of Nairobi with his mother, who owns a preschool; father, a purchasing agent; and older siblings Ian and Shelby. After waking to the sound of barking dogs from next door, Prince helps with morning chores before heading off to school, where we sit in on a science class. After school, he rides bikes with a buddy, making sure to clean off all the dust from the road, caused by the area’s years-long drought. Homework follows dinner, then it’s video games before bed. During the weekend, Prince helps with the shopping, attends church with his family, and enjoys a local festival featuring tribal dances. Later he visits relatives at the seaside city of Mombasa.

Eleven-year-old John starts his day on his family’s farm at five a.m., helping his parents and brother, Jeffrey, with household chores like tending to their many animals. Then it’s an hour-long walk to school where he attends the seventh grade six days a week. He tells us that education is deemed very important so villages work hard to come up with the money to help the schools. He has midday dinner with his family, who close their shop at noon along with the rest of the local businesses. We are also taken on a safari tour run by John’s cousin and shown the wondrous wildlife of Africa, including lions, elephants, zebras and hyenas. At night, John helps bring in the furniture from outdoors and feeds and waters the cows before heading off to bed.

Families of the World is recommended for ages 5-11. Each DVD includes a free PDF Teacher’s Guide, which features the script, copy-ready maps, discussion and activity guides, recipes, glossaries and more.
