To celebrate the publication of its new book, This Is My World – a fun and fascinating collection of 84 children’s stories from across the globe – Lonely Planet Kids is creating an enormous paper chain that’s shaped like thousands of children holding hands. The idea behind the campaign is to bring children from around the world together, and celebrate their diversity and shared values.
When Lysa Upham, Headteacher at East Bierley CE(VC) Primary School, heard about the campaign, she was determined for her whole school to get involved. She asked all 230 children in the school to complete one of Lonely Planet Kids’ templates and encouraged the children to talk about the different communities they came from. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning about other cultures and values and took pleasure in completing their own individual templates.
