[A] a bright debut for the Finnish artist.
—Kirkus Reviews

Walk This World will delight children ages 5-8 with its celebration of life in a day told through a stroll around the globe. Written by Jenny Broom and illustrated by Lotta Nieminen, this interactive book has more than 80 flaps for kids to open and enjoy as they travel from New York and visit places such as Australia, India, and London before returning with the heartfelt conclusion 'that though we might look different, underneath we're just the same.'
—New Jersey Family

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
At a certain age youngsters begin to be curious about other parts of the world. Of course, there’s quite a bit for them to learn and Walk This World is an excellent early introduction to neighboring countries.

The book’s premise is that someone wants to go everywhere, to all four corners of the globe but has only a day in which to do it. Young readers are invited to explore different cultures by simply turning the pages. Each country is represented by two 8" by 12" pages which lie perfectly flat for extensive exploration. With more than 80 flaps to open readers can peek through windows and open doors as they become acquainted with another culture.

The adventurous walk begins with the author’s hometown, New York City and visits a myriad of places. Next stop is Paris. Pages are introduced by four line poems which are also clues to the place’s identity.

Cleverly conceived and sturdily constructed the book will withstand countless openings of flaps. After an introduction by an adult youngsters will undoubtedly want to repeat the journey many times on their own.

Das Buch ist sehr schön gestaltet, allerdings ungeeignet für (Klein-)Kinder, da die Illustrationen zu abstrakt sind?
Weder meine Nichte (4) noch mein Neffe (3) haben irgendein Interesse an dem Buch, so oft ich es Ihnen auch vorhalte ...

HASH(0x985e342c) von 5 Sternen Onion Dome and Cozy Homes 31. Dezember 2013
Von Jayne P. Bowers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I ordered this book for my granddaughters to read, and the moment I took it out of the box, I knew I had made a good choice. The cover is colorful and filled with drawings of people, animals, and places all over the world. It’s a pretty book with an inviting format that will surely appeal to children in middle childhood.

The writer begins his walk in NYC, and right away I noticed the ubiquitous yellow taxi that’s associated with the Big Apple. There is a big hotel, a bridge (Brooklyn?), and the last few letters of a museum (GENHEIM). Right away I noticed the flaps that hid other scenes, and I knew that kids would love this.

From New York, the traveler goes to France where he says, “Merci,” and before the day ends, he hears gondoliers greeting him with,”Ciao!" in Italy. Traveling on, he hears samba drums and bhangra beats, sees brilliant saris and relaxed beach bums, and experiences drizzly streets in England and neon signs in Japan. While I was able to recognize the scenes because of travel and reading, a young child might need a little help in figuring out some countries, like where the "onion domes and cozy homes" are.

Sometimes children (adults too!) think their little corner of the world is “the world,” but this book tells a different tale. While the book demonstrates that although we all have different languages and different ways to live and work and play, we are a lot more similar than dissimilar.

HASH(0x9b7a1050) von 5 Sternen Africa challenged--Walk This World Misses the Mark! 16. Juli 2015
Von Globe Trotter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
My 3 1/2 year old son received this as a gift. He reallyjkes it, and it is beautifully illustrated, but every time I read it I get annoyed that all of the places she visits are recognizable countries--the US, France, Australia, Japan, England, Russia, Brazil, India, Italy--and then there's Africa! Really? As if Africa is one country. It perpetuates a stereotype about the ignorance of the west when it comes to Africa. I was very disappointed. Admittedly, it would be hard to pick any one country, just as I imagine it was for South America and Asia (for which she chose two--near and far, no middle). But, to fail to do so sadly make's the author look uninformed or lazy.

HASH(0x9b7a0f90) von 5 Sternen Pretty book that explores cities around the globe 24. März 2014
Von Carole P. Roman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Lovely renditions of a variety countries that invite children to explore and discover the many differences we enjoy. Beautifully illustrated, each page is a cornucopia of colors and subjects with interesting flaps making it interactive. A small poem accompanies each city. I wish there was more information per page, like flaps with small facts to pique young minds. A pretty book, with great potential to open discussions about the world and the people who live on it.

HASH(0x985e3b4c) von 5 Sternen Disappointed 4. Januar 2015
Von justgazin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
It was not really what I expected..Too simplified..Not enough real detail for a child who is interested in the differences in the world and its countries. Drawings were interesting, disappointed in what they talked about, and the details the book gave on cultures, and life in different places. The child I gave it to, who is seven years old, read it in five minutes and never picked it up again..

HASH(0x9b7a1170) von 5 Sternen Only OK 28. Mai 2014
Von Jan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I was attracted to the concept of visiting places around the world and opening flaps to look behind the scenes. There's a lot of interesting detail, especially for older children (the drawing is a bit too abstract for under 8 or 9). Some of the flaps were wonderful, ie: what's inside the carriage, hidden by the balcony rail, behind the door or window. But many were confusing and my best guess is that they represented the same location at a different time- a man carrying a violin case and behind the flap playing it or an ice cream cart with kids waiting to buy and behind the flap the same scene with the addition of the ice cream seller and her scoop. So OK, but not quite what I had hoped for.
