KIRKUS REVIEW

Taking a tour of twenty-two countries, the author focuses on the varying lives that children live around the world. For each country there is a child and through the child's eyes, the life of the people is viewed. The author's on-the-spot water colors of landmarks, costumes, architecture, and other points of interest brighten the condensed narrative which give a perfunctory picture of each country' history, customs, economy, topography, climate, etc. A helpful supplement for classroom geography and a gentle introduction to junior cosmopolitanism.
