Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Families come in all shapes and sizes and practice different customs according to their beliefs or where they live, but what makes a family special is the same all over the world. Whether children grow up with a mother and a father or are raised by aunts, uncles or grandparents, it is the love, respect, and care that make a family a family. Kinkade offers examples of how children are raised in several different countries. The author also takes care to point out how different customs portray the love and affection caregivers give to children no matter what country they live in. Little's photographs are portraits of families, some posed and some showing families in natural settings. Yet each photograph adds tremendously to the text and is captioned to indicate what country, tradition, or custom it represents. A colorful world map at the end shows where each country mentioned in the text is located. 2006, Charlesbridge, and 6.95. Ages 3 to 6.
—Danielle Williams
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Through full-color photographs and descriptive paragraphs, this book explores the similarities, differences, and relationships among families throughout the world. The pictures feature a variety of relatives sharing meals, playing games, and going about their daily activities in and around their homes. Each photo notes the country where it was taken and an appended world map shows its location. Unfortunately, the impact and quality of the photographs are uneven and although the text is informative, neither the images nor the writing is engaging enough to read more than once. Barbara Kerley's You and Me Together: Moms, Dads, and Kids around the World (National Geographic, 2005), with its stunning photography and poetic text, is a better choice.-Genevieve Gallagher, Murray Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
