  This is My World: Meet 84 Kids From Around the Globe – Lonely Planet Kids, (9781787012950), 2019

Format: Hardcover

Rating:  1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 5

 What did you like about the book? 84 kids from 73 countries are presented here, some from more unusual places, but representing all the continents: Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, Oceania and South America.  Each child is given a 2-page spread done in scrapbook style with photos and facts like age, family, school food, pets, talents, home, games and hobbies. The personality of the child radiates from this small amount of information.  It is quite fascinating.

Anything you did not like about the book?  No.

 To whom would you recommend this book? Many kids will find this book of particular interest, perhaps noticing just how alike they all are though living in very different places.

Who should buy this book? Public and elementary school libraries

Where would you shelve it?  305.23

 Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? I would say close to and perhaps the top for many a reader.
