“With a clear, full-color photo and a short caption on each page, this small, square title shows how people across the globe use land, animals, and plants to grow food, make clothes, keep warm, and have fun. . . this is an excellent starting point for discussion with young readers at home and in the classroom. An illustrated glossary concludes.”


“The many components of good informational books at this level will encourage skill building and scientific curiosity at the same time.”
