Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 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

My four year old has always shown an interest to people of different cultures. This book full of bright color pictures and simple stories is a wonderful introduction for kids of all ages to the way kids live around the world...and despite the differences, each seems happy with their way of life.

Bought this book, as was recommended for Girl Scout World Thinking Day. Children can learn about children from various countries.

This was my ABSULUTE favorite book as a little kid. I was always interested in different cultures and I loved this book! I would flip throught the pages and think 'Ooh, I want to be just like her,' refering to the pretty dresses and jewelry. I reccomend it to EVERY kid 5 and up. Wonderful book!

It's a perfect book to encourage young readers to understand their counterparts around the world. The value of respect diversity will guide them through life.
