Love Me
Great introduction to world cultures. I read two pages a day to my younger child. We used youtube to look up some of the music mentioned. He especially liked the section on the Caribbean.

Beautiful book!

Totally meets expectations.

This book is a great way to introduce the world to kids. I'm not a teacher, but I'd guess it's at about a third grade reading level. The text is broken up with brightly colored pictures, so the book does not look intimidating even to a younger child. There is one map per continent, which shows climate, political boundaries, and landmarks (like major rivers and cities).

I've not followed many of the internet links yet, but I do plan to.

The most valuable parts of the book are the first two sections "What are People" and "People and Culture". These are incredibly difficult issues to address with an early elementary school student, and I feel the book does a great job. The other information in book would be possible to find elsewhere (although I doubt it would presented so beautifully), but I've found no other resource that attempts to address "What are People" at this level. The origin of humanity is not mentioned, although the word species is used, and the book states that people "belong to a group of animals called primates, which includes apes and monkeys". The wording allows for a pretty easy jump into either evolution or creationism if you want to go there, but doesn't leave you feeling like they forgot something if you just skip it all together.

Peoples of the World has the parts you'd expect from an academic work: table of contents, index, acknowledgments, even a couple of footnotes that refer you to other pages in the book. Each picture has a caption.

Another plus for the book is that if focuses on the mission of introducing young children to the beauty and diversity of the world. It does not delve into the conflicts or the horrors of the past, nor does it take sides. It avoids controversial subjects simply by stating facts. "Israel is a Jewish state which was created in 1948. Many Arabs claim that Israel's land belongs to an Arabic people, the Palestinians." is a good example of how the book gives an opening if you wish to discuss the matter, but doesn't actually go into it. It handles slavery the same way, stating when and where and who, but not delving into the subject.

I recommend this book for elementary school children. It's not overwhelming for younger children, and contains lots of starting points for older children.

I think it should be re-named, "Indigenous Peoples of the World." There seems to be an almost exclusive focus on indigenous cultures,their traditional dress and practices. Very interesting but it does NOT give an accurate picture of what these countries actually look like today. In addition, I think some of the pictures may actually scare young children.

Wow! How shocking it is to crack open the book for 1st grade and see nudity, then have to put the text out of reach due to evolution being clearly taught. I feel that to teach a love for learning, then color over and put the text out of reach is as much a contradiction as teaching my k and 1st graders evolution. It is not that I am opposed to the introduction of other ideas, but not at 1st grade!
