I Like to Play

Overview

This delightful series is the result of collaboration between Tundra Books and World Vision Canada to bring an array of exceptional photos from around the world to very young children.

Overview

This delightful series is the result of collaboration between Tundra Books and World Vision Canada to bring an array of exceptional photos from around the world to very young children. Each book centers on a universal theme, familiar by its very nature, yet new due to faraway settings and ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic diversity. Each remarkable photo essay will foster discussion, observation, and many smiles as children compare and contrast their own experience to that of others.

I Like to Play presents the many inventive ways that children find to explore their worlds and to have fun. Grand! is a loving visual essay about the relationships that tie grandparents and grandchildren, no matter where they live or what the circumstances. The country where each photo was taken is included.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
PRAISE FOR GETTING THERE:
“Attractive color photos shot in many countries by different photographers … A gorgeous book …”
Kirkus Reviews

“… stunning photographic essays with minimal text.… The combination of words and photographs evokes compassion and celebrates life in all its variations.… [A] series that is ideal for schools and libraries, wherever diversity is celebrated.”
— Excellent from Resource Links

PRAISE FOR MOM AND ME:
“The overall message for children is: Mom is always there for me and ‘she loves me like nobody else.’”
— Editor’s Pick on Canadian Living

“Marla Konrad has beautifully captured the special bond shared by mothers and their children in a worldwide context.…”
— Highly Recommended and 4/4 stars from CM Magazine

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—These books provide large, lively photographs of children with their grandparents (Grand) and playing alone or with friends (Play). Many of the subjects are looking directly into the camera, inviting readers to ask questions such as who these kids are, where they live, and what they are doing. Unfortunately, the spare texts don't answer these questions. Also, there are no page numbers, making it difficult to match the pictures with the countries listed in the photo credits found on the CIP page. These books are pretty to look at but lacking in basic information.—Catherine Trinkle, Hickory Elementary, Avon, IN
Kirkus Reviews
A flawed look at the ways children play around the world. Many children in the United States or Canada may no longer make their own toys, but the photos of kids from Bangladesh, Malawi and Sudan who have created their own playthings from bits of wood and wire or even old radios are intriguing. The photos of children dancing in Peru and Myanmar, building with plastic blocks in Indonesia and Vietnam and playing with balls in Ethiopia and Mongolia (activities a little more familiar to most North American readers) can also work as conversation starters. Unfortunately, this book in the World Vision Early Readers series suffers from a lack of specific identification (readers have to go to the photo credits to find out where the pictures were taken), no map and a text that provides little new information. While the emphasis on the universal is understandable, maps and country names can and should become part of every child's early learning, and it's precisely these visual books that could help make children aware of the world outside their little neighborhood. Look for others that do the job better. (Picture book. 4-6)
