From Alfredo, Arturo, and Agostino in Mozambique to Zoe in Jamaica, W Is for World explores the lives of children across the globe. Each letter is shown in upper- and lowercase, with a word like kite or lamps or Grandfather, followed by what that word means in a particular country and a photograph. Featuring over 20 countries from Greenland to Vietnam, the book shows how different the world may look to people of different backgrounds, and yet how many things diverse cultures share. Kathryn Cave's simple text and the compelling color photographs from the relief agency Oxfam make this a distinctive alphabet book.
