With a simple question and answer (Q and A) format, the reader explores all of the potential definitions of "global" and then learns about what it means as an individual, as a community, and as a society.
Simple text and bright illustrations come together to teach little kids about big ideas.
Our daughter loved the illustrations. She instantly recognized some places (like the pyramids in Egypt) and focused in on the faces of the children.
This is a beautifully illustrated, well presented book. The author does an outstanding job engaging readers in the first few pages with her questions. Although she is teaching "concepts," she matches them well with visuals and ideas that kids can understand. The illustrations reminded me of the kids Todd Parr draws. I was surprised by the reading level for this book. This is an excellent choice for a second grader to read.
This picture book helps children understand their roles and responsibilities as global citizens.
This is the kind of book where you give kids a chance to answer the title question before reading. There is one piece of the concept on each page, and it is easy to stop and expand the discussions as you go along.

Read by a nearly 8-year-old girl.
Borrow, at least. This is a book that will grow with your child. Toddlers and preschoolers will like it for the pictures, elementary aged children will grasp the concepts and ultimately be able to read it themselves.
