Teach middle and high school kids about income mobility with this Around the World book about Peru, a country rich with natural resources but plagued by political corruption and violent protests. Despite its valuable mining industry, moving up the economic ladder in Peru is fraught with difficulty, especially when compared to the freedoms we experience in America.

Created for middle and high school students, PragerU’s Around the World books explore complex topics such as communism, energy needs, and freedom of speech in an age-appropriate manner and give children a new appreciation for American values.
