Children Just Like Me
A collection of stories by

Children Just Like Me: Our Favorite Stories from Around the World provides a cheery trip around the world through folk tales. This book reaches out to the broad audience that kept Children Just Like Me: In Association with UNICEF, the earlier title in the series, on bestseller lists for six months. This beautiful follow-up retells the favorite stories of 10 of the kids featured in the first volume. Colorful illustrations and photos of the contributing child accompany each story and margin notes offer background on each youngster's native land, with countries ranging from Brazil to France to Botswana. Each nation is marked on a big, colorful map in the book's inviting introduction. Children Just Like Me: Our Favorite Stories from Around the World successfully avoids the well-intentioned multiculturalism that too often substitutes correctness for art. (Recommended for all ages.)
