Genre: informational
A great multicultural book for presenting children's life around the world, using exquisite, moving photographs and Barbara Kerley’s poetic text to convey a simple yet profound concept: we are one global family. This is also a sophisticated concept book, presented as an elegant picture book with contributions from top international photographers. At the end, each image is reprinted as a thumbnail and accompanied by a detailed caption. It fits in elementary school students.
This book uses a combination of text and pictures to portray the information. It is an interesting technique, as the text shows the similarities and the pictures are what differ (for example, "Time for school." is accompanied by many pictures of the many different ways in which children get to school). The information is accurate in this book, in that they are real pictures. ( )

This book is about the life of people around the world, in one day. It talks about morning routines, going to school, coming home from school. It shows many different cultures and many different lifestyles. This book shows cultural differences very well and praises all cultures.

Barbars Kerley puts together a beautiful collaboration of real life photography of children around the world. This book explains how children around the world get up each morning, get dressed, have breakfast, travel to school, have lunch, recess and go through their busy day just like all children, but in different ways. This is a wonderful book to share with children to show cultural diversity, but similarities. ( )

This is such a great book to read to kids to show them the different cultures around the world. They're kids just like them in different countries but do things a big differently. The children all do the same thing but how they do it is different. There are different cultures in America that some kids may have to adapt to coming from a different cultural lifestyle or vice versa. ( )

This beautiful photo book follows the course of one day in our world. Sunrise to sunset is captured in the essential things we all do daily, wherever we live in the world, and in the different ways we do them. The first meal of the day will take on a whole new dimension for American kids as an American pancake breakfast is contrasted with porridge in North Korea and churros in Spain.… (more)
