Welcome to Our World: A Celebration of Children Everywhere!


Find out how children live all around the world in this beautifully illustrated paperback book

Children all over the world are very different, but they also have much in common. In this beautifully illustrated book, young children can learn all about what people in other countries eat, wear and play, and how they speak and celebrate. From breakfasts to birthdays, cakes to clothes, and hiccups to hellos, there are so many ways to say and do things – but everyone shares a love of family, friends, food and fun. This delightful book teaches us that despite different languages, customs and traditions, it really is a small world, after all.

A unique, warm-hearted book to help teach children understanding, harmony and respect.
