I enjoyed the way the story was told. I felt it was a great way to explain about different cultures and communities for students to understand in their own words. I also loved the illustrations used. The collages were captivating and a different type of picture book brought to life. A great book and I would use this for my classroom one day!

An interesting tale of a society very different from our own and one man’s mission to save its people. Although and informational book it is anything but boring. Using the mix of photography and mixed media it offers young readers the chance to learn about another country and culture yet still leaves readers captivated and entertained. This is a read that any social studies teacher should defiantly have on their shelf. Though the story told does focus on the science and human relations this book would be easy to use across curriculum. The story might also inspire young readers to think beyond themselves and the possibilities for making the world around them a better place.
