I can't see this book. The set-up seems to me artificial, and the interest is forced. Might have some value if presented by an adult, but I believe the same thing can be better achieved elsewhere. Successive ""stories"" contrast ways of living, and point out the value of each. There's a boy of the arctic and a boy of the jungle; a boy of the mountains and a boy of the valley; a boy of the rice fields and a boy of the deserts; a boy living in a lighthouse and a boy living in a city. They visit each other and face the problems of adaptation. Pictures are decorative patterns for the pages, reproduced with tone blocks to give color effect.
