This is a wonderful book about children around the globe. The authors spend 2 years meeting and photographing children from every continent and from almost 140 countries. Divided into continents, this book introduces you to a child from each of the regions. One double page spread features pictures of the children, their living environment, food, family, housing , school and friends. Each of the children are interviewed and the text reads like one. The book is packed with information but at the same time does not over do it. A great book to take with you on your travels. But if you are at home, why not discover new worlds with your children right from your reading chair?
