This engaging cut out book features 10 children from different cultures, 2 per page, holding hands and dressed in traditional clothing. A simple rhyming pattern is used to appeal to younger children and provide color to the text. It starts off referencing differences in appearance, and then provides Biblical explanations for the separation of people groups at Babel (and therefore different physical characteristics). It also reminds readers all humans are descendants from Adam, and all are sinful and in need of Savior, and that we share a common history documented in Genesis 1-11.

Rather than focus on many European cultures (as different and intriguing as they are), I liked that this book includes the full spectrum of the color palette, highlighting that all humans are some shade of brown from dark to light. Excellent for pre-schoolers and a good review for elementary kids studying the first 11 chapters of Genesis. This one is a keeper for our home library.
