Wide Big World
Clarke, Maxine Beneba
Kindergarten children notice that they look different and have different cultures. They begin noticing many differences such as one is ‘hairy and tall’ and another is ‘cute, chubby and bald’. ‘Difference is everywhere’ in the world, including nature, they observe. Visible differences in cultures is the underlying theme, with both words and images conveying this idea clearly. The acceptance and appreciation of differences in this picture book offer opportunities for group discussion and interaction.
