One World, One Day

 I really like this book. One World, One Day was written by Barbara Kerley and published in 2009 by National Geographic. It is illustrated with photographs taken by various photographers. The text is minimal, allowing the pictures to tell the story. The story is about one day in the lives of children all around the world-what they eat, what they learn in school, how they play, and how they spend time with their families. The young reader will see how children from other countries are different or surprisingly the same as they are. My favorite photograph is of a group of children in China walking to school along the dividing walls between rice terraces. This is a great choice for parents and children to read together. I also think this is a good choice for this time of year, holiday season, when people are hopefully thinking about peace on earth and good will toward men.
