Children of the World
By: Tessa Strickland, Kate Depalma, and David Dean
Reviewed By: Nancy Lawrence Hill
With wonderful illustrations, this book invites children to explore the world and consider their place within it. It focuses on what we have in common: families, homes, clothes, hobbies, foods, names, feelings, baths, etc. With illustrations showing children’s varied experiences in each category, it’s a book that children will enjoy exploring on their own. For a different experience of the book, adults and children can use the explanations in the back to learn more about each illustration. Read this with a special child in your life and introduce them (and you!) to games like kendama from Japan or food like cuy chactado from Peru. You’ll both have fun learning!
This book is available at Ten Thousand Villages in Chestnut Hill or online from independent bookstores.
