Using a rich array of context clues and detailed illustrations, this picture book highlights the shared experiences of children around the world. Unlike other books about global diversity, this title focuses on common elements of humanity, without first assigning them a label. Rather, general scenarios are introduced (everyone opens their eyes in the morning; everyone needs somewhere to live, someone to care for them, a place to play, a place to be quiet and reflect) and illustrated with a variety of painted scenes depicting racial, cultural, and geographic differences. Only after immersing readers in the unique and fascinating everyday lives of everyday children ("It's easier to understand someone when you know their story"), do the authors offer specific information on the book's illustrations, such as the different homes, hats, and foods featured. The text is unembellished and occasionally poetic, and the artwork is filled with details that will bring new discoveries with every reading. This is an ambitious book that succeeds in capturing all manner of diversity of the human species. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
