" A beautiful and thoughtful book that explores the diversity of children and families around the world. Love it! " said.

" Where to even start?! This book grabbed my children from page one - asking questions, picking out who looked like them, spotting differences we could talk about... this book gives me ALL the feels. Tonight we spent over 30 minutes - just to get through the book - expanding briefly on eyes, food, and languages. Each and every page is a treasure trove of talking points and sharing moments! I know we will spend many hours together enjoying this amazing book! " said.

"Not a book to read in a hurry. This one is full of interesting illustrations and questions. Both kids were so eager to answer the questions (example page: We can all do amazing things. what do you like to do? What would you like to do if you had the chance?) and explore the illustrations. It has a wonderful resource included at the end of the book called "A Closer Look at the Illustrations" and it explains the details included in each picture. For example, the page about homes gives a description of each of the five homes and where (country of origin) one might find each home. " said.

"This beautiful picture book is an absolutely stunning reflection of the children of our world. Saturated with detail in both the illustrations and the text alike, young readers will find themselves introduced to people, places, customs, foods, games, work, and much more throughout the pages of Barefoot Books Children of the World. What is especially important about this book is that it does not fall into the trap of centralizing the United States and privileging the "white" lens. Instead, the pages are lined with a plethora of cultures, ethnicities, and families from all over the world. The only central focus in this book is on children in general, and helping them understand how they fit into their world, and why they should celebrate their unique differences and experiences. In this picture book, all people and cultures are just as important, meaningful, and special as the next. Personally, I could sit and look at this book for hours, reading every little blurb and paragraph, carefully inspecting every detail in the images. I imagine children whose hands this lovely picture book falls into will do the same. Strickland, DePalma, & Dean's marvelous world atlas of children should be an important staple for any library, bookstore, classroom, or family book shelf.

I received this copy from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

" Could spark some amazing discussions with your little one. " said.

" Beautiful. If you like to give your children a view of what life is like for other children in the world, this is a great start. Of course it doesn't delve into the awful side of things but it does explore food, lodging, transportation, families, etc. The illustrations are beautiful. " said.

" There is so much representation in this book. It's beautiful. " said.

" Light on facts, it still is a feast of celebrating the differences and similarities that exist across our beautiful world. " said.
