From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Strickland's latest selection about children around the world begins as an easy picture book and ends as a nonfiction title with explanatory back matter for elementary schoolchildren. As the acyclic illustrations zoom in on a variety of global locales, details about where and how children live come into focus. After the interiors of five different homes are shown, a variety of families are depicted eating, playing, and spending time together. They include individuals in wheelchairs and LGBTQ families. The book is interactive and broad in scope, with each page containing questions ("Which languages do you speak?") and illustrations of children of all ages. VERDICT An excellent introduction to cultural diversity for public and school libraries and elementary classrooms. Perfect for geography and social studies lessons.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, Alta.

It's the kind of book that some people might write off as "Super PC." But I sat down with an asthmatic multiracial foster kid to read it, and she was excited to find kids and families like hers--I'm so glad this book exists.
