‘Children of the World’ by Nicola Edwards, illustrated by Andrea Stegmaier, is a great book for children and adults alike to learn about children and their lives. The book shares about children at home, from their kitchens, to their sicknesses, to families and talk of bedtime, to how they live their lives in their own worlds, from talk of travel to how they speak, superstitions they have, and so much more.

The book shows how to say certain words and phrases in a wide variety of languages, and it even talks about the way different parts of the world eat their pizza! The way in which people greet each other is discussed, and there are a couple of pages about children at school, including how in Los Pinos, Colombia, children travel to school on a zip line through the rain forest. What a way to get to school every day!

It’s nice to know more about the different ways in which children around the world live, but even more important than the differences that exist, it is vital to understand similarities, and how despite the fact that children may have different traditions or ways in which they live, kids around the world stand together, as the last page of the book so eloquently states.
