Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
[E]ach stop is identified in the accompanying comment, and the Richard Scarry–style cartoon scenes include recognizable landmarks or other location markers. Running beneath every spread are nine labeled items for viewers to spot—combining generic bicycles or sunglasses with site-specific national flags, animals, foods, musical instruments and the like. ... A good way for tourists who are still toddlers to glimpse the wide world without leaving a parental lap.
—Kirkus Reviews

Take a quick trip into the imagination with Littleland: Around the World, by Marion Billet. Each page spread features a different country, such as the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Kenya. Readers can also hunt for cultural sights in each drawing for even more adventure.

PreS-K—The "little ones" (a mixed group of 10 different animals, including a pig, koala, dog, and alligator) are leaving Littleland for a trip around the world. Each spread features a brief description of the locales they are visiting and a selection of seek-and-find images for children to spot. The first spread includes items they will need on their trip, such as a map and camera. The little ones visit a variety of cities across the globe, with searchable objects relevant to each destination. The journey begins in London (teacup and black taxi), goes through the Netherlands (tulip and windmill), India (mangoes and sitar), visiting nearly every continent, before winding up in New York City (hot dog and skyscraper). The digitally produced images are colorful and simple while still conveying the visual flavor of the different sights. A solid choice.—Martha Link Yesowitch, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NC

The 10 animal tykes introduced in Littleland (2013) dance and play their way around the globe.The itinerary begins in London, ends in New York's Central Park and in between stops in a more or less geographically logical mix of cities and generalized locales. These range from Venice to the pyramids, Tokyo to the Australian Outback. Happily, Africa is represented by both Egypt and Kenya, which is specified as "a country in Eastern Africa," although the tour is heavily Eurocentric. Endpaper maps track the journey, each stop is identified in the accompanying comment, and the Richard Scarry-style cartoon scenes include recognizable landmarks or other location markers. Running beneath every spread are nine labeled items for viewers to spot—combining generic bicycles or sunglasses with site-specific national flags, animals, foods, musical instruments and the like. Ethnic stereotyping is, at worst, mild; in China, for instance, only one figure is not dressed in a festival robe, and in Italy, "people often eat pizza for lunch." As the characters are all animals, ethnic markers tend to be sartorial.A good way for tourists who are still toddlers to glimpse the wide world without leaving a parental lap. (Picture book. 2-4)
