PreS-K-This picture book should pique the interest of youngsters learning about the world around them. A brightly illustrated two-page introduction focuses on the differences and the similarities in children everywhere. Readers then travel around the globe from the Philippines to Tanzania, China, Australia, Canada, Morocco, the U.S., India, Mexico, Japan, Greece, and Bolivia, meeting 12 different children, one on each spread. In short, simple sentences they describe where they live; their families; what they eat; languages spoken; and sometimes school, transportation, or religion. Eye-catching, cheerful collage illustrations, created with fabric, paper, mesh, string, and felt, depict happy faces exuding plenty of personality. A simple world map places the featured children in their respective countries. This book will appeal to youngsters, and teachers may find it works as a prompt to classroom discussions about diversity.-Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
