Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic book to introduce your child to different cultures I purchased this book for my daughter when she was a baby because I wanted to teach her about different cultures from the very beginning. We loved reading this book - also makes a great gift. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Add it to your child's library! We were gifted this book for Christmas. Although my toddler hasn't taken as much of a liking to it as we have, we still include it at story time when we can! Beautiful to look at and to read!
