ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This colourful and joyful book celebrates children and their customs and traditions around the globe. From manners to music, clothes to cakes, pets and parties, it introduces children to different words and expressions as well as ways of life. Words are given with easy pronunciations, illustrated in a bright naïve way, and explain aspects of living that young readers aged 6-8 can relate to. A delightful way to introduce the diversity of world cultures. Lindy Jones


Children all over the world are very different, but they also have much in common. In this beautifully illustrated book, young children can learn all about what people in other countries eat, wear and play, and how they speak and celebrate. From breakfasts to birthdays, cakes to clothes, and hiccups to hellos, there are so many ways to say and do things - but everyone shares a love of family, friends, food and fun. This delightful book teaches us that despite different languages, customs andtraditions, it really is a small world, after all.

Moira lives in Bath, Somerset, with her family. She loves to cycle, sew and sing. Harriet Lynas is an award-winning children's book illustrator who lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and their son. She has always loved doodling since she was able to hold a pencil and decided to become an illustrator at the age of ten. After studying Visual Communication Design at University, Harriet worked as a graphic designer in the fashion industry before becoming a children's book illustrator. When she is not drawing, she enjoys cooking exotic foods and country walking.
