PreS-KIn this companion to All Kinds of Families (Albert Whitman, 1976), Simon shows that while there are many differences among people and cultures, all children have the same needs and desires. They all require food and clothing, they all like to play and listen to stories, and they all want to be loved. The simple text, enhanced by Patersons large, clear watercolor-and-pencil cartoons, imparts the message in an age-appropriate manner. Large enough for group sharing, the detailed pictures also beg poring over. Questions embedded in the text (What work do you do? What is your favorite story?) involve young listeners, allowing them input and providing an opportunity for personal comparisons. Inclusion of children from a number of ethnic groups helps enhance a sense of identification. Engaging and positive, the theme of self-recognition within diversity is neatly delivered.Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA Copyright 1999 School Library Journal Reviews
