rainbow of multicultural faces and expressions

PreSchool-Grade 2?A delightful visual smorgasbord. Large full-color photographs, strikingly framed by white space, present a rainbow of multicultural faces and expressions. Not only are many races represented, but also the models range from infants to the elderly. The rhyming text marvels at how features as simple as 'two eyes, a nose and a mouth' result in infinite variety. Smiling faces demonstrate the differences that exist in eyes, eyebrows, and noses. Intrater makes a wonderful graphic point of how dull a world of sameness would be with a double-page spread of over 100 identical smiles. The message that our differences make us special is carried over to the final page, where readers are invited to paste their own picture among even more unique and beautiful faces (a problem for libraries). Young people-watchers can spend hours gazing at these pictures without the usual pitfall of being told not to stare. Although the text definitely plays second fiddle to the photographs, it serves to guide viewers to the diversity in humans that many of us take for granted.?Lisa S.
