OneWorld Stories presents its first fictional children's book about how a family in Uganda crossed paths with a ferocious lion.
This story was written and illustrated by students from King Solomon's Junior School in Bulenga, Uganda and Sharon Elementary School in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Our goal at OneWorld Stories is to give students a chance to experience and connect with other cultures without even leaving the classroom. Two different classrooms from two different cultures are joined together as a team to create one fictional story. One classroom starts the story, the other classroom adds onto the story, and then the story is sent back to where it began to be finished. The story is published, and the proceeds from the sales of the book go back to the students' schools. All the while, each classroom is learning and exploring the other classroom's culture and seeing what it is like to be in each other's shoes.
Our goal is to enable students to recognize their similarities, respect their differences, and never forget their experience.
