Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Using a simple rhyming text, Kerley captures the essence of childhood's special moments, accompanied by superb full-color photos that depict parent-and-child interactions. Diverse cultures in various locations around the world are represented, and individuals are shown wearing a colorful array of traditional clothing. Children and parents engage in activities such as playing an instrument, taking a walk, making a meal, fishing, and dancing. Simple enjoyments also include sharing a joke or tale, taking a ride or a nap, and holding hands. The universality of childhood joys is evident whether in the United States, Iceland, Saudi Arabia, China, Thailand, Bhutan, Japan, Suriname, Indonesia, Brazil, Papua New Guinea, or any of the other settings. Back matter contains a world map, miniature reproductions of the photos along with their locations and a descriptive caption, and an inspiring "Note on the World's Children" written by Marian Wright Edelman. This book is an excellent tool for raising awareness of cultural differences and similarities. Its design and layout will allow for classroom use, group sharing, or individual reading. A welcome and timely addition.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
