My child who is 6 was just mesmerized by all the info in the book. She is great reader and
she read the book all by herself within half hour drive in the car. It has relatively small print
so I needed glasses when I tried to read it again with her at bedtime but she managed to read
fluetly without any problems.
The book has nifty simple map of the world at the beginning and all the customs are divided
into the geographical regions as in.. North America.. South America.. Central and south Africa..
Australia.. etc.. there are bit more divisions then only continents but not that many more.
It makes totally sense considering that there are different geographical/ethnical regions within
one continent and that is reflected in the custom.
Someone complained in redundancy of the customs but I think that it is not a flow, it is actuall
amazing sociological phenomenont that happens around the world and is reflected in the book..
a child picks up on it quickly as she reads and figures that there are actually similarities
or customs are identical in few countries.. that makes you wonder and you begin to
speculate and analize and make some scientifical discoveries.. as in..
it becames apparently obvious that the countries that were UK colonies share the same custom
as UK.. and then again.. areas where african culture was relocated from africa reflect the roots
of african customs etc.. that is just awsome and the whole deducting by geography thing
makes so much fun for a child.
you can clearly see why and where the similarites are and where they must have orignated.Read more ›
