Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-3Two highly pictorial overviews of hair and shoe styles ranging from ancient to modern times, in legend and in fact. Readers are told that in addition to individual preference, hairstyles and shoes can reflect environment, culture, politics, religious beliefs, social status, and ceremonial customs. The good-quality photographs and reproductions, most of which are in full color, have been skillfully integrated with the equally intriguing texts. Short, informative captions appear along with more detailed explanations. Although contents page, glossary, and index enhance the titles' research value, their lively pace and unusual photos encourage leisure reading as well. Badt's objectivity clearly reveals that regardless of a ``World of Difference,'' we are all equally similar.Claudia Cooper, Ft. Stockton Independent School District, TX
