(Publisher, please note: Only drawback is that the cover is very delicate as it is unlaminated and the blue ink rubs very easily, spoiling the look of the book and its perceived quality.)
It shows exactly what the title says-where children actually sleep from the most lavish surroundings to the more than basic.
Its a simple and clear way that children can see how other children live around the World and the inequalities that exist.
I showed the book to the person who delivered it - they want a copy. I took it into work, I took it to friends, it's being bought for children, for teenagers, for adults, for artists, for teachers, it's on so many Christmas lists.
I'm just going to buy two more copies - one for home, on for work, and one to keep for ever because I know the others will disappear.
The photography and writing is superb. It's a thought a provoking read, which I think should be shared selectively with younger children. some of the children live in absolute poverty in this book- just use your discretion when using this book with children. I would say 8 years + is a good vstarting point.
I'm very happy that I bought this. A must read.
