design mom strikes again!

a favorite in our house is “children just like me” by the kindersleys. there’s a two-page spread for each of 30 or so countries. each spread features a child, their family, their school, their clothes and foods, and so on. LOVELY book that my girls beg to be read from. we read it along with a children’s atlas and they just love it. mom and dad love the exposure and tolerance the kids gain!

thanks for the recommendation! i’m not sure we’ll be able to wait to give it as a gift!

Oh were they ever happy. so fun for kids to see the pictures and ask all their inquisitive questions.

It has photographs of families all around the world with a small bio of a child on each page. Its really an incredible book that everyone should own.
Beautiful pictures and brief intros to people all over the globe!

It fascinated me to no end! Plus, it was a Peter Spier — anything by him is fabulous.

She was one of the very first children’s authors to incorporate multi-cultural images of children in her books.

(BTW they are in reprint as board books, which makes them great to read with little hands!)
