Nonfiction/Children -- 3 and up
by Willie Elliott
Zobel and illustrator Miki Sakamoto teamed together to produce a
very nice lift-the- flap book that teaches kids of a very young
age that no matter where we live, we receive many gifts from God
on a daily basis.
to the main message, the young readers are introduced to multiculturalism
since the story represents kids from around the world, and that
theme is introduced in the first line, "We're all children
of the this great-big world from Maine to Timbuktu."
Younger kids will be delighted for the opportunity to lift the flap
and see what the kid-of-the-page has as additional information.
You know kids love to lift things.
kids will begin to grasp the idea that some of the best gifts from
God are the ones around us daily-rainbows with rain, fireflies,
and holding a ladybug.
