To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Lovely book and is well illustrated but not what I was expecting and is why I’ve gave it two stars. Very disappointed. I thought this would be a book I could use to start the conversation with my 3 year old of race, religion and disabilities but doesn’t recover any of this.
Multiculturalism and respect for all different cultures are absolutely something I want to instill in my child. The content of this book, and the intentionality shown through it are good. However, there is very limited, repetitive vocabulary. With this level of vocabulary, you would expect it for little kids (2-3 y/o). But many concepts (e.g., chemistry experiments, world map, flags of different countries) in it can't even be understood by 4+ y/o! If I want to make use of this book, I have to wait until my child is older, but when he is older, this book would be too simple for him in terms of the vocabulary it provides and the enjoyment he might feel. BTW, I saw the flag of Hong Kong among a bunch of other countries' flags. Hong Kong is not a country. It's only a region.
Bought this for my kindergartener but she was waaaay to old for this. The pictures are nice and it's a good book if you want to just expose your toddler (maybe 2yo) to images of people of different backgrounds, but as far as the wording goes, I would echo other reviewers in that it's super boring and repetitive - there is nothing there, and certainly nothing there to teach a 5+yo about diversity and acceptance. A shame and unfortunately a waste of $.
While the idea and concept are wonderful, the book itself is rather boring. It has no story or anything. It basically retreats the title over and over on each page rather than get the kids involved in anyway or make it relatable to them. It was a bit disappointing.
