I was given this book as a gift and keep coming back to it. As do my children, 3 and 5, and adult friends. The children in this book are aged 4-17 and the pictures are presented in age order. The children live all over the world in all sorts of circumstances and, although we never see anyone else in the photos, we discover about their families and in many cases their employers, with whom they live. Some children are living in desperate circumstances, some are very comfortable but you can't read this book and make easy judgements. Really thought-provoking without having an obvious or simple message.

My soon-to-be three daughter, who is under pressure to lose her dummy, loves this book and has started quoting it. I think the narrative is incoherent but then I'm not the target audience. The illustrations are sweet, though.

This is a fantastic book and both my children (2 and 4) love it. The story is told in simple words that are easy to understand and illustrations that are rich in detail without being overcomplicated. However, if you're looking for something to persuade a toddler to eat vegetables, you are probably overestimating the power of literature and underestimating the strength of a pre-schooler's will.
