From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6?A delightful, attractive look at children from around the world. The authors spent two years meeting and photographing youngsters from every continent and more than 140 countries. The volume is divided by continent, which is introduced with photos of children, their names, and nationalities. Then a double-page spread features pictures of each child's food, eating utensils, housing, school, friends, and family. The text gives the young people a chance to comment on their favorite games, friends, and hopes for the future. The final section includes excerpts from the Kindersleys' travel diary. This book is factual, respectful, and insightful. It provides just the right balance of information and visual interest for the intended audience.?Joan Soulliere, Wenham Public Library, MA

The candid, approachable text, accompanying quotes, and nuggets of information make the lives of these children as vivid as a friend's. -- Family Fun

They could not wait to hear about children from all over the globe.
Today, I have two young women who have traveled the world.
That have passion for being a part of making change.
I truly believe this book was part of that early inspiration.
Thank you for the incredible stories, the pictures that helped bring the children to life and the reminder we really are more alike than we realize.
Now, I am passing that legacy along and giving this book to my future grandchildren.
Can't wait to see their eyes light up the way my girls did!
Please take the time to purchase. Your eyes will be opened up to bigger things.
So grateful we did many years ago....
It is a great tool to introduce children to the diversity of culture and religion that exist around the globe.
