The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a delightful story about friendship across nations and cultures, in which one small child visits nine different countries to find a friend - and ends up being friends with ALL the children he meets. In all the countries he visits he learns that there are things that many children do in different places and things that are specific to individual countries. After his trip around the world the boy knows that friendship crosses all boundaries.


One World Together by Catherine Anholt, Laurence Anholt

I want a friend but who will I choose? Take a trip around the world, meet children from lots of different places and peep into their lives. Along the way he discovers how children live in other countries and the things they enjoy doing - showing both how their lives are different, and how many of the things children enjoy are the same throughout the world.

The countries featured are: USA, Brazil, China, Russia, Kenya, the Netherlands, Sweden, Japan and Morocco


'Beautiful artwork...and perfectly pitched narrative... A good introduction to cultural diversity and equality for young children.'

'Beautifully illustrated, this book does try to show how different life is for children in different parts of the globe but also how there life can be fun despite those differences.'
