AWARDS & REVIEWS

Reviews

"This highly informative book will get kids thinking and asking questions."

Booklist, 01/03/2002

"It’s an eye-opener for all."

Where Toronto, 01/03/2002

"These days, the world seems to be getting smaller. This timely, unique book enhances that sentiment. It is useful for a current understanding of the world’s population."

School Library Journal, 01/05/2002

"Thought-provoking and highly effective, this world-in-miniature will open eyes to a wider view of our planet and its human inhabitants."

Horn Book Magazine, 01/05/2002

"This amazing book could be used in many different ways across the curriculum."

Children's Book News, 01/12/2002

"Each chapter (on topics such as population, food and schooling) is accompanied by bright, folksy illustrations that make this global village look like a lively and interesting place. Includes a section on teaching children about the global village."

Library Talk, Starred Review, 01/12/2002

"Unique format shrinks the world’s population down to 100 and presents who we are, where we live, how fast we are growing, what languages we speak and more."
