Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A UNICEF sponsored journey through schools around the world. Goodwill Ambassador David Beckman introduces the book in a heartfelt letter, explaining how the United Nation's Children's Fund is working to provide mini-schools to children in places that have been devastated by disasters. These mini-schools arrive in a lockable suitcase, called School-in-a-Box, and include supplies needed for an average school day: paper, pencils, chalk, etc. Proceeds from this book help to provide more school kits to needed areas of the world. In this gorgeous book, photographs of children draw you into each page and entice you to read more. A smiling Maria from Peru opens the book as section one focuses on the Americas. She is ten years old and lives in a rural community in the village of Pampacancha in the Andes region of Peru. Her parents are separated and she lives with her grandparents and two aunts. Her first meal each day is provided by the government, bread and soy milk. Her school has one computer. The pictures and captions provide a wealth of information on each spread; such amazing similarities and fascinating differences are seen from school to school, from country to country. It is a quick non-stop trip from the Americas to Africa, to Europe, to Asia and finally to Australia and New Zealand all in eighty pages. Forty one children from thirty-one different countries are introduced. The world is a huge place that grows smaller when looked at through the eyes of a child. This is a coffee-table-sized book that would be a worthwhile addition to any library. Children and adults alike will enjoy the journey this special book offers. Reviewer: Kathy Leggett
