|Long Description||Children from 192 countries around the world tell us about their homelands in words |
and pictures. Children of the World celebrates and teaches through photographs, fun facts, maps, artwork, and poems created by children around the world. With this book, families learn a little of the geography, traditions, and peoples of 192 countries around the globe--including our cultural similarities and differences--ultimately discovering that children everywhere draw, smile, play, and rejoice in their different backgrounds and in their universal friendship. On every page, the lives of children in a different country come to life.
More than 18,000 children in more than 300 schools participated in a U.N.-sponsored school visitation program between 2005 and 2009, and each was asked what it means to be a child in his or her own country. Selections from their answers in firsthand reflections--poems, drawings, and paintings--as well as photographic portraits allow families a glimpse into vastly diverse cultures and a chance to have a virtually global group of friends.
The proceeds from this book will contribute to implementing U.N. and Art in All of Us programs in classrooms around the world.

Code39 also known as Code 3 of 9 allows you to encode text using characters A-Z and 0-9 and some punctuation. Using an extended encoding system, it is possible to encode the entire ASCII character set.
Each character is made up of 10 elements where 5 are bars and 5 are spaces. You may have seen this described as 9 elements on other sites where 5 are bars and 4 are spaces but there is always a narrow space stripe between characters which means we might as well consider that trailing narrow space part of each character making the total number of elements 10. The final trailing narrow space simply appears to be absorbed into the quiet zone to the right of the final barcode. There is no check digit in this symbology unlike others. The variation between the width of the bars is what define the value of each character.
In the image below you will notice the start and stop block are the same. In most Code39 fonts,this is encoded as the asterisk (*) character although it is not displayed under the barcode. The text under the barcode is optional and is for human use only. The start and stop asterisks are not decoded when scanned and may or maynot bedisplayed. Also how the text is displayed depends on the process used to create the barcodes. Often, the text is simply under the barcode without the indent displayed in our sample.
Normally, there are only 43 characters that can be encoded using Code39. But if you want to encode the full ASCII characterset, you can prefix letters with special characters to get the characters you need including lower case and special characters. Although it is possible to encode the full ASCII set, if you actually need to do this it is better to use Code128 because it will produce a smaller barcode.
