This story covers different aspects of places all over the world and some of the things you might experience as you travel. B is for the different types of bread you might eat. Under the letter I is a discussion of some of the islands around the world. Q is for some of the quests you might embark on. Each two page spread has paragraph in rhyme about the world and a side bar with a more lengthy explanation about places around the world.
The illustrations are created by many different artists which is fun because you get a different depiction from each different artist. All of the art is quality work, colorful, detailed and interesting.
This book is a fabulous introduction to the world. It gives a glimpse into culture as well as geography. As an alphabet book, however, it is quite challenging. It is full of brand new words and concepts. It is also quite lengthy. It may take several sittings to get through. It is advertized for ages 6-8 which I agree with as it is too heavy for the littlest ones seeing the alphabet for the first time. It would be a great classroom resource for teaching culture and geography. This is a book so rich it will need to be visited over and over again. It can be used as a springboard for many many different topics.
My son liked this. We read this as part of the One world many stories thing at the Library this summer in Fulton. They had rhyming passages on one side and more informational stuff on the other page for each letter. My son liked hearing the different names of places. He liked the illustrations and I liked the information they gave.
