From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5. Sixteen short stories culled from the pages of Highlights for Children. Each selection?about five or six pages in length?is set in a different country. In simple but eloquent language, they tell of friendship, childhood innocence, hard work, and sheer grit. One of the best stories is Lee Ebler's "Like an Antelope," a Sioux Indian tale in which Tata and Small One, two handicapped boys, join in their village race. In a moving display of courage and friendship, the youngsters overcome their disabilities and cross the finishing line together to be received and praised by Old Chief. In Elizabeth Van Steenwyk's "Maybe, a Maypole," Meeka, a Swedish girl, overcomes loneliness and a lack of English skills by sharing her culture with her American classmates. Eleanor C. Wescott's "Ti-Jean" tells of a Haitian boy who works hard to buy a goat so his family will not starve. Each story has a clear message and a valuable lesson. The drawbacks are the lack of an introduction and information about the writers and how the stories were compiled. In some cases, there is no mention of the story's country of origin.?Gebregeorgis Yohannes, San Francisco Public Library, CA
