"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.
