I have had the good fortune to meet children of many countries on four continents--Asia, North America, Europe, and Africa. As you will see when you read Children from Australia to Zimbabwe: A Photographic Journey around the World, some of these children lead very different lives from yours or mine. Some wear traditional clothing woven in bright colors by their mothers. Some live in houses made not from bricks or wood but from mud or grasses. Many speak languages that you and I wouldn't understand.
Celebrate the many faces of children around the world.
Vibrant color photographs portray positive images of children that help foster a sense of global citizenship. With an abundance of information about cultures, languages, and environment, this fascinating journey around the world will inspire both young and old alike. Readers will also discover Xanadu, an ideal imaginary land described and illustrated by elementary school children.
