This series of photographic information books concentrates on the daily lives and experiences of children in countries around the world. Each book focuses on a particular child's day: from waking up, through breakfast, going to school, learning, travelling home, playing and getting ready for bed. Ren Yikang is seven years old. She lives with her parents in a five-storey apartment in Changzhi city. Her mother wakes her at seven and after breakfast her father gives her a lift to school on the back of his bicycle. Yikang is on school cleaning duty this morning. She and some of her classmates mop the floors of the classrooms. At five o'clock it's hometime. Yikang and her parents sit down to a dinner of rice and stir-fried Chinese celery with "doufu" (bean curd), sweet and sour aubergine and sliced pig livers in a thick sauce. After dinner Yikang practices her English letters. At about ten, she kisses her mother and father goodnight and goes to bed. She reads cartoons until she feels sleepy. Yikang, Wanan! (Goodnight, Yikang).
