This Is Our World, written by Tracey Turner, is a colorful celebration of our planet’s cultural and environmental diversity—an unforgettable journey that brings the people, customs, and wildlife of 20 places around the world vividly to life for young readers. Our guides are children who tell us about the animals, plants, and weather that they encounter; the feasts and festivals they enjoy; and the clothes they wear, the way they learn, the languages they speak, and the sports and games they play.
The tour is truly global, as we journey from Australia’s desolate Red Centre to bustling New York City, from the windswept Outer Hebrides to the rock houses of Cappadocia in Turkey, via the Amazon rain forest, the Alaskan wilderness, a floating village in Cambodia, and the remote village of Supai, Arizona.
This is both a beautiful gift book and a highly-accessible home reference, sure to foster an interest in the wider world, in travel, in diversity, and in conservation. It teaches us that despite its countless languages, customs, and traditions, it really is a small world after all.
