Great book for teaching students about other cultures. While reading this book I would show some of the clothing items the book mentions and show the countries on the map.

The book describes the main characteristics of every person from different parts of the world such as race, color or even religion. Children can learn more about diversity and cultures of other people thanks to this book which also provide some languages spoken in those places.

What a wonderful book to introduce diversity! I absolutely enjoyed how many different cultures were pointed out in this book. Before I read it to a class I will make sure to learn the correct pronunciation and meaning of some of the words, because students will have many questions to ask with this one. This is a great learning book for children and a great way to help them to understand that while everyone may be different, they still have several similarities. This would be a book that I would read to my class sometime during the first week and then take the activity further by having them talk about where they're from and something that is unique about them.
