Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

reS-K-This picture book should pique the interest of youngsters learning about the world around them. A brightly illustrated two-page introduction focuses on the differences and the similarities in children everywhere. Readers then travel around the globe from the Philippines to Tanzania, China, Australia, Canada, Morocco, the U.S., India, Mexico, Japan, Greece, and Bolivia, meeting 12 different children, one on each spread. In short, simple sentences they describe where they live; their families; what they eat; languages spoken; and sometimes school, transportation, or religion. Eye-catching, cheerful collage illustrations, created with fabric, paper, mesh, string, and felt, depict happy faces exuding plenty of personality. A simple world map places the featured children in their respective countries. This book will appeal to youngsters, and teachers may find it works as a prompt to classroom discussions about diversity.

A colorful and informative book for youngsters that points out the many similarities shared by children living around the world. Children may look differently and speak in one or more foreign languages but children everywhere, rich or poor, are loved by their families. In short and simple sentences each of the book's featured children relates something about their country, their family and home, their religion, school, food and customs ... and their favorite thing be it a favorite pet or sport. It's sort of the information they might share with a pen pal.

You can easily come up with ways to expand upon the material found in the book ....

As you and your child read the book it might be fun if the whole family were to take part, perhaps setting aside one night a week or a couple of times s month when you or your spouse cooks a special ethnic dish and family members (or at least the children) each wear a piece of clothing similar to that of the child/family currently being studied. Perhaps everyone could learn a couple of phrases such as 'Good Morning, Good Night, How Are You, and Thank You'. And maybe an older sibling could do some additional research on the internet ... and find an interesting fact to share, for example: "And did you know little Sis that every little girl in that country is given a blue toy on her sixth birthday?" And then your older son or daughter could hand your little girl a blue toy pig even though it isn't her birthday.

There is a lot of information in this book for older kids, while the illustrations are engaging enough for my 2 1/2 year old. She loves naming all the children. Great book!

I bought this thinking it would have factual information about different cultures and would be educational for kids. Instead it has silly generic introductions into each child's life with very few facts. The book itself is fine, until the very last line and then I completely lost respect for the book. I still gave it because I didn't have enough time to order anything else because it took so long to come in the mail. The only good thing about the book is the illustrations.

I am a kindergarten teacher and used this book to teach my students abut diversity and different cultures. It is perfect for this age and grade level. I really recommend it because it's not too wordy and the pictures are lovely.
