A celebration of diverse world cultures from the brilliant Peter Spier, one of the most beloved children's illustrators of the last fifty years. In this breathtaking tour around the world, young readers can pore over the many details that make each country and culture unique and special—illuminated by Spier's detailed and witty illustrations of festivals and holidays, foods, religions, homes, pets, and clothing. In print since 1980, this classic, boundary-pushing book is a must-have in today's global age—a tribute to the ways in which we as the world's citizens are at once both different and the same.

This book is wonderful at making learning exciting. Each fact has an interesting way of expressing the world and the people that live in it. This is a great tool for a project on the world and the different cultures in which we have. Groups in elementary school could each do a project on a country or certain area and share with one another. ( )

This is an amazing informational book because the book describes different people all over the world.
I would use this book in my class because it is so interesting to learn culture in different countries. It is suitable for third graders. ( )
