Whether families live in modern cities or remote villages, they share many of the same joys and challenges. Vibrant photos and engaging text depict children in many countries as they live, eat, play, work, and learn with members of their families in this celebration of diversity and of the human family.
Gr 1-3-Through full-color photographs and descriptive paragraphs, this book explores the similarities, differences, and relationships among families throughout the world. The pictures feature a variety of relatives sharing meals, playing games, and going about their daily activities in and around their homes. Each photo notes the country where it was taken and an appended world map shows its location. Unfortunately, the impact and quality of the photographs are uneven and although the text is informative, neither the images nor the writing is engaging enough to read more than once. Barbara Kerley's You and Me Together: Moms, Dads, and Kids around the World (National Geographic, 2005), with its stunning photography and poetic text, is a better choice.-Genevieve Gallagher, Murray Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
