Armchair Traveler: Families of the World DVDs
We all love this series in our house. Each dvd takes two kids and their families, one from the countryside, and one from a city, and follows them for a day, from the moment they wake up until they go to bed. We've watched the one from Russia, and learned that city kids there drink milky coffee for breakfast, and that kids in Japan have fantastic school lunches. There are over 20 of these dvds (from Ghana to Sweden), and really, they are a perfect way to expose your kids to other cultures, in a way you'd never be able to, even if you travelled there.
