Barefoot Book of Children, The This large format picture book promotes an understanding of cultural diversity by asking children questions about their lives and inviting them to compare themselves to their counterparts in different countries. Attractive illustrations, often grouped in multiple panels per page, illustrate the variety of features that make up a child's unique self - whether body shape, size, skin hue, favourite possessions, pastimes, individual preferences and aspirations - and invite recognition of similarities with the lives of other children, finding what they have in common from the depiction of a range of homes, types of family, beliefs and the many examples of how others learn and play. An afterword gives more factual detail about the themes of the preceding material and invites further reflection.
