This book describes all the ways that people can be different from each other. This is a good book for children because it teaches them to embrace who they are and how the are different from others.

This book tells about all the differences between people in all ways and forms around the world. I like this book and would use it in my classroom to show differences in people in the world. Grades 2-6.

We like [a:Peter Spier|6575|Peter Spier|/assets/nophoto/nophoto-M-50x66-e07624dc012f2cce49c7d9aa6500c6c0.jpg], and this is a fascinating book, although quite dated. ( )

This is a terrific book! The author addresses some very important issues regarding diversity and acceptance in a mature way. It can be used with all age groups to launch some meaningful conversations. ( )

People by Peter Spier points out that we come in many colors, with different-looking features; that we dress in different ways, enjoy different things, have different personalities, live in different homes, speak (and write) different languages. We all keep different pets, celebrate different holidays and worship in different ways; that "some of us excel at things others could never do, that there are more different ways of earning a living than you would believe. Yet, he quietly observes, without a single exception, we all began quite small and in the end we all must die. Review: Dondra (LibraryThing participant)
