Ages 5^-8. Chesanow begins in a child's room, places it in a home, on a street, in a town, and then in a city and state, country, continent, the world. And that world is called Earth, which is a planet in the solar system. Then the child is drawn back to a page of questions about the reader's own street, town, state, and so on. The author's chatty approach may lose some readers along the way: "Your home is the place where your room is. It's the place where you live. Of course, you don't live at home all by yourself. Other people live there with you. They are your family." The ink drawings with bright watercolor washes will appeal to many children, though, and so will the book's central idea. Primary-grade teachers doing units on "Who Am I?" may appreciate the long-range perspective this book offers. Carolyn Phelan
