In the tradition of her classic "All Kinds of Families", Simon uses both neighborhood and the international stage to celebrate children and their similarities. Each carefully chosen example and comparison helps forge a connection to friends and neighbors, other cultures, and far-away lands. As children listen to this book being read aloud or read it themselves, the world grows a little smaller while understanding and acceptance grows larger. Full Color.

Do you know that every child in the whole world has a bellybutton? Just like YOU! All over the world, children are the same.

All children need food — milk, cereal, meat, vegetables and juicy fruit, rice and pasta and bread — food to help them grow big and strong and smart,

All children need clothes — diapers and shirts, pants and dresses, hats and coats, all kinds of shoes!

All over the world, children live in houses. Some houses are big, some are small. Some are way up high, some are on the water. Some children stay in the same house for a long time. Some children move from place to place.

This book is a book about how no matter where you are from or what you look like we are all the same in some way or another.I liked the book. Looking from a child's perspective I could see how they would enjoy it. There a lot of pictures to keep there attention and to help them interact with the book.I could see reading this book to a class and then having a project of drawing pictures of us and our surroundings then maybe comparing them to someone else's picture to see how they are alike. Showing the class that we are all different but we all have similarities to.

This is a informational book, kind of. No plot, no specific characters in this book. The author presents truly statements of the same things of different children. Children can learn many differences but also similarities in the world around them from this book.Age:PrimaryMedia: watercolors.

Age: IntermediateMedia: WatercolorThe genre of this book is realistic fiction because the people in the story are not factual people, but rather people who only exist in the story. They could be real people though because they are normal human beings.

My 3 year old daughter LOVES this book about children from all over the world and how they are different, yet the same. She carefully looks at each picture that shows children needing/doing/having similar things, such as children sleeping, wearing different clothing, eating different foods and helping do jobs within their own families. The book relays that children all need to be loved - by all different kinds of people. My daughter was adopted from China, and she enjoys seeing that children all over the world do similar things, but sometimes in different ways. The language is simple, and the pictures are colorful and fun. I will make this book a gift to many of my friends for their own children to enjoy!
