If you take a look at the illustrations most cultures are portrayed as rudimentary tribal having exaggerated features and the black braids look like medusa hair or spikes Is this what you want to be showing your children? It takes extremes from each country and puts them into one place but when talking about ridiculousness and showing culture Western is the one that is the pinnacle of it I'm also concerned that it begins with a white Adam and Eve as if that is where all people stem from Two white individuals fathered the entire world according to the first image on the inside Without context this could be very damaging for children of color and misrepresentative of the world at large What a child will remember about this book will be the images not the message Perhaps the author should have updated the images as well as the text

With updated statistics and current geographical information People by Peter Spier first published in 19 We still own the battered beaten up copy of this homage to humanity that our two daughters returned to so often that it needed patching up with a judicious amount of sticky tape A wholehearted celebration of diversity it devotes pages to appearance homes food clothes pastimes jobs pets feasts and holidays beliefs language a little history and most of all throughout it all to 'People everywhere And all different' It was first published in 1981 and now that I took it out again to use as a language teaching tool I had to update the population figures at the beginning it predicts that there will be 6 billion on the planet by the year 2000 so I updated the forecast to 8 billion by 2020 It's incredibly useful as a teaching aid; vocabulary to do with appearance to describe hair and figure to talk about games we play animals we keep or would like to The only trouble is that there is too much in there for a learner my young student who comes just wants to look at the wonderful illustrations So we have these little battles where I'm trying to concentrate on her learning useful words while she wants to know what that is? 'It's a Barrel Vaulted Stone House from Turkey' I think that belongs in the category 'non essential vocabulary'
