[A] a bright debut for the Finnish artist.
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.'

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.

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.
