PreSchool-Grade 2?A delightful visual smorgasbord. Large full-color photographs, strikingly framed by white space, present a rainbow of multicultural faces and expressions. Not only are many races represented, but also the models range from infants to the elderly. The rhyming text marvels at how features as simple as "two eyes, a nose and a mouth" result in infinite variety. Smiling faces demonstrate the differences that exist in eyes, eyebrows, and noses. Intrater makes a wonderful graphic point of how dull a world of sameness would be with a double-page spread of over 100 identical smiles. The message that our differences make us special is carried over to the final page, where readers are invited to paste their own picture among even more unique and beautiful faces (a problem for libraries). Young people-watchers can spend hours gazing at these pictures without the usual pitfall of being told not to stare. Although the text definitely plays second fiddle to the photographs, it serves to guide viewers to the diversity in humans that many of us take for granted.?Lisa S.

Ages 3-6. Using numerous color photographs portraying a variety of faces and facial features, Intrater discusses eyes, eyebrows, noses, mouths, and lips. The simple, rhyming text reassures young listeners that differences in appearance are both interesting and desirable. The illustrations portray a wide range of ethnic groups and ages, but the author makes no mention of eye color or teeth. Although somewhat limited in scope, this may be useful for preschool classes or for very young children just learning the names for body parts. Kay Weisman
