The dazzling photos on these pages will spark your children’s interest in the bigger world—other places, other people and their families, other cultures, and other creatures from around the planet and beyond!
You’ll also learn ideas for how to ignite your curious kids’ creativity by building connections between the photos and asking questions such as, “What do you see that is the same? What is different? What can we discover together?”
So climb aboard for adventure as your kids’ (and your) imaginations go wild!

This book does exactly as it says which is "spark[ing] children's interests in the bigger world!"
It's filled with fun, diverse, and colourful photos from all around the world. Different animals. Cultures. People. Environments, etc. introduced in a fun and simple way for kids.
I think this book is perfect for children because it really really shows them how wonderful the world is!
What a wonderfully creative book! I just loved the beautiful pictures and the clever captions, allowing children to explore in a variety of ways. I kept thinking that this book would be perfect for homeschooling - younger children can count the items in the pictures and learn the simplest terms (mother, baby) while older children look for similarities between the pictures (they both have spots, they are both using things they made themselves). Even older children can use their imaginations to create stories, poems or art, or research the animals, people and places depicted.
The photographs were taken by the author, in two dozen countries and all seven continents, so there are also opportunities to talk about places and people who live differently than you do. Each page has two pictures, with captions (“Can tortoises smile?” “This bird has blue feet! What color are your shoes?”). The author has also included helpful information at the end which tells something about the photos and gives ideas for creative learning.
As an educator, I heartily endorse this book, and plan to buy several copies for my grandnieces and nephews.
Many thanks to Greenleaf Publishing and NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for my honest review.
