Here's an exciting trip around the world, written and illustrated for Spanish-speaking boys and girls who are just beginning to learn about different people from different lands. Though millions of people live on our planet, each one of us is different and unique. Different kids have different color eyes, hair and skin, and they live in places that are each different from all other places. Boys and girls open this book to meet children in China, Alaska, and Japan. They meet a little boy from Yugoslavia who was injured in the recent war, and a little girl in Namibia, Africa, who travels from place to place with her nomadic family. Another little girl lives in Venice, where all streets are canals. A boy named Guaracu lives with his tribe in the dense, rich Amazon jungle of South America. Young readers discover that although kids around the world are different, they all like many of the same things—for instance, playing and having fun with family and friends. The color illustrations on every page help bring the lifestyles fully alive, showing how kids around the world are very different, yet also very much alike. A two-page section at the back of this charming book offers guidelines and discussion points for parents and teachers.
