Inhaltsangabe: In Time to Play, readers will meet children from around the world and find out what games they like to play. From board games to sports, some games are played in only one culture, while others, such as soccer, are loved in countries and cultures worldwide. Many families cannot afford to buy toys, but that doesnt keep inventive youngsters from making their own toy cars, dolls, bikes, and even soccer balls from trash!
From School Library Journal: Gr 1-3-As the series title suggests, this set invites readers to compare their own lives to those of a diverse group of children from all around the globe. The books focus on topics that are of interest and will be familiar to kids. Bright, attractive photos (often four to six per spread) are the strongest element. The texts are comprised of simple paragraphs with basic content and well-written captions, supplemented by circular sidebar insets. A "Where in the World" map locates all mentioned cultures. The tone is cheerful, but sections about children who lack safe food, water, or the opportunities afforded to American children will encourage readers to empathize with those who are less fortunate. These volumes introduce other cultures even as they emphasize the universality of the needs for shelter, clothing, food, education, and celebrations and play. VERDICT Strong choices for early readers.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
