School Library Journal - 07/01/2020 PreS-Gr 3—Photographs depict children from around the world involved in playtime activities. Bright primary colors, as well as short sentences with a repetitive structure, will engage early readers. A variety of cultures and physical ability levels are represented in an authentic and positive manner. Children have the opportunity to see different cultures but also to identify commonalities across global communities. Captions provide further details. However, other common nonfiction elements (a table of contents and a glossary) are not included. Also, the captions lack punctuation, which could be confusing to early readers. The back pages contain photographs, additional information, and a map that highlights the featured countries. VERDICT A colorful and fun way to introduce young students to nonfiction works and the global community. Recommended for early elementary collections.—Christina Salazar, Mesquite I.S.D., TX - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
