Children and Where They Sleep

James Mollison uses the power of series (and its inherent qualities of comparison, contrast, expectation and surprise ) to tell the very moving story of childhood around the world in his book Where Children Sleep.

“I hope the book gives a a glimpse into the lives some children are living in very diverse situations around the world; a chance to reflect on the inequality that exists, and realise just how lucky most of us in the developed world are,” says James.

Other series we've had on kids and schools around the world include:
