Stern draws on her travels around the world, offering memorable stories that present powerful and sometimes counterintuitive lessons about life. Each of the stories focuses on a particular locale--Bangladesh, Mozambique, earthquake-ravaged Haiti, the Brazilian Amazon--and weaves together material on the country and its history, an account of the humanitarian crises at issue, and depictions of the people she meets on the ground. Throughout, Stern traces her emerging global consciousness, and describes how these stories can positively impact our own children.--From publisher description."@en
