Criticas
K-Gr 2-This book contains colorful, flowing illustrations that describe the differences and similarities of people and cultures around the world. It embraces diversity and multicultural awareness, and teaches children to understand that people may be physically different but still share basic human qualities. A great selection for a lesson on tolerance and acceptance.

I love this book. The illustrations are beautiful and the text is thought provoking. I only wish that a bilingual version would be published so I could have one copy to read to both English and Spanish speaking students.
