This delightful series is the result of collaboration between Tundra Books and World Vision Canada to bring an array of exceptional photos from around the world to very young children. Each book centers on a universal theme, familiar by its very nature, yet new due to faraway settings and ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic diversity. Each remarkable photo essay will foster discussion, observation, and many smiles as children compare and contrast their own experience to that of others. I Like to Play presents the many inventive ways that children find to explore their worlds and to have fun. Grand! is a loving visual essay about the relationships that tie grandparents and grandchildren, no matter where they live or what the circumstances. The country where each photo was taken is included.
