Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Chernak
No matter how many children the world holds, no matter how unusual they may look or sound or seem, they share many characteristics. After all, have you ever met a child who didn't love to play? Didn't need food? Didn't want someone to love? This book celebrates difference and sameness in a reassuring way, from its beginning bombshell that "...every child in the whole world has a belly button" to "...every grownup in the whole world used to be a baby" to "All children love stories." You'll definitely love this one, especially its closing frame showing the maturation of a whole generation.
School Library Journal
PreS-KIn this companion to All Kinds of Families Albert Whitman, 1976, Simon shows that while there are many differences among people and cultures, all children have the same needs and desires. They all require food and clothing, they all like to play and listen to stories, and they all want to be loved. The simple text, enhanced by Patersons large, clear watercolor-and-pencil cartoons, imparts the message in an age-appropriate manner. Large enough for group sharing, the detailed pictures also beg poring over. Questions embedded in the text What work do you do? What is your favorite story? involve young listeners, allowing them input and providing an opportunity for personal comparisons. Inclusion of children from a number of ethnic groups helps enhance a sense of identification. Engaging and positive, the theme of self-recognition within diversity is neatly delivered.Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    A must for everyone !

    My 3 year old daughter LOVES this book about children from all over the world and how they are different, yet the same. She carefully looks at each picture that shows children needing/doing/having similar things, such as children sleeping, wearing different clothing, eating different foods and helping do jobs within their own families. The book relays that children all need to be loved - by all different kinds of people. My daughter was adopted from China, and she enjoys seeing that children all over the world do similar things, but sometimes in different ways. The language is simple, and the pictures are colorful and fun. I will make this book a gift to many of my friends for their own children to enjoy!
