Nice art, book itself doesn't really say that much
on 21 November 2013
The focus is on differences in the lives of several young children who live in different countries and cultures. However most of the examples seem are a bit odd, example: "Child A wears open toe sandals", "Child B wears shoes", "But they both wear sports shoes in gym class at school".
Aside from being an absurd comparison to make; this is also (surely) factually incorrect, as it's likely that Child A goes to a school where there are no sports shoes, or gymnasiums.
I can see the author's intentions, but the book feels like a missed opportunity.
