I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a great way to teach others about the importance of embracing diversity. ( )

A picture book celebrating the diversity of people that exist in our world. Considers everything from diversity of skin color and face shape, to diversity of religion, of sports and games played, of languages spoken and types of alphabets used, of clothing worn, of perspectives on beauty, etc. Wonderfully informative and inspiring, both in concept and in the illustrations, which bear hours of study by young children.

This book is a bit older, but still very educational and relevant. It takes readers around the globe and tells a story about the culture and the people that make it up. It could be beneficial in any classroom or home. Not only does it teach about different areas but also it promotes celebrating differences which is something that can never be reinforced too much. I enjoyed this book. ( )

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.
